LWN.net Weekly Edition for November 21, 2013
192000 samples/second * 8 movie channels * 4 bytes/sample * 128 streams / 1048576
That's a whole 750MB/s ... my desktop computer has 30GB/s dram bandwidth. For the highly more common 48K * 2 ch * 2 b/sample * 32 streams, the bandwidth is a pathetically small 6MB/s.
The fact that the Linux kernel can't natively handle mixing a few audio streams for the average desktop user without trotting out the anti-DoS argument is silly.
