The minimal latency you can get with USB is mainly limited by the USB
bus, not by what is at the other end of the cable.

I was able to play with 32 sample period in Jack and even one power
lower using a cheap Burr/Brown-chipset USB card (Terratec Aureon, though
any card will do) - but that's not very stable and only works for a
short time unless you have a really well tuned system (which I haven't).
