The lowest latency in ALSA I've gotten without the audio cutting out was 5.8ms/11ms at 44.1KHz (at 24 bits or 32 bits, no difference). That's 256 sample buffer x3. It's approximately the lowest latency setting I got using the same device in Windows 7 with ASIO. It's an Asus Xonar DX card.

With JACK (talking to ALSA) it was 5.8ms/17ms using those same buffer and sample rate settings.

I imagine I could get lower latency by stepping up the sample rate, but I don't use higher sample rates. And if I used a realtime kernel maybe I could improve that number. I'm just not tempted too much to swap kernels at the moment.
