Perhaps, maybe, let's see..
I just got a secondary PC and decided to test it with my Scope cards.
The board is a Gigabyte Z270-HD3P and it has two regular PCI slots.
Both slots are at the bottom end, so it's possible to add a big graphics card without problems.
I did the normal BIOS changes, except that there now is a new technology called Speed Shift which is meant to replace Speedstep.
I disabled all of these things, C states, EIST and Hyper-Threading.
There is also a choice between legacy and UEFI under "PCI devices", and I chose legacy when I installed Windows 10.
I'm not sure what effect this has on Scope, because resetting to UEFI does not seem to trigger dropouts.
At first I had ASIO dropouts (testing with Reaper), but eventually these disappeared and the system now seems very functional.
If there is something inferior about this system compared to my Z87 machine, I haven't found it yet.
I didn't test with the same Reaper projects though, because that would mean installing all the VST plugins and there are quite a few.
Instead I tried to stress the system with Native Reaktor instruments via ASIO; 5 Razor ensembles, 5 Prism, 5 Monark and 5 Rounds, 40 ASIO channels + 8 channels in return from the buses on STM 2448. (CPU usage abround 50%) This is enough for my needs, but I realize things could change if I went even higher. How many ASIO channels blasting at once would you guys regard as a successful test?
Let me know if there is anything specific I could test for you with this system:
Gigabyte Z270-HD3P (CF)
Intel i7 7700 socket 1151 @ 3.6 gHz
Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR4 2x8GB
Samsung EVO 256 GB SSD
Corsair HX 750i PSU
One Scope and one Pulsar2 card, 21 DSP total.
Sorry, no XITE yet
