They are consistently in the worst performance per buffer size in windows interfaces.

The thunderbolt ones are ok though I think.

There is a massive topic for this at gearslutz, testing tons of windows interfaces at various buffer sizes vs amount of plugins.. RME always at the top, as is presonus. UAD Tbolt not far behind, but that's mitigated by the fact you can use the dsp on board for your effects monitoring.
Focusrite USB stuff right at the bottom. I don't remember where the Tbolt was but I can find it.

The RTL of their usb stuff is horrible too.
