This is a HUGE bonus for HDX systems. Not only the overall lower latency to start with, but the fact that sessions with extremely large track counts running countless plug-ins will NEVER have to have the buffer size bumped (thereby losing low latency) to compensate for the increased load on the CPU. HDX users will also never have to deal with the "zero latency" hardware workarounds.
