The windows thunderbolt drivers are fantastic (for asio) with UAD. If you need an all in one to browse and play games as well, well then no, as their WDM drivers aren't the best. The problem is with the USB3 drivers for the twin.. go thunderbolt with a good gigabyte motherboard and you'll be fine.

I use pro tools at 32 buffer on my imac pro in bootcamp, with 6 UA devices connected, and I never, ever raise it above 32. It's amazing and absolutely solid as a rock.

RME are great interfaces and have terrific drivers for sure :)

I won't go anywhere near anything focusrite when it comes to interfaces..

Honestly on windows i'd go RME, Quantum or UA Tbolt.
