    a lot of windows latency issues for our purposes can be caused by shitty sound cards/sound card drivers... crap network cards, horrible discrete video etc... also possible but less common are things like chipsets, memory timing, ATA/SATA controller things like that

    That sounds about right, only one port on my laptop is 'properly' powered, so if your DAC gets its power from the usb buss, it may not getting properly powered from the lower rated of the 2. Check your machine specs and see if thats the case. I think they do it as mice and other common peripherals don't really need that much power
