allright, i should go back reading docs...
sorry for being grumpy.

however, i still wouldn't trust what i haven't measured myself.
i have seen a lot of numbers in the web, that i totally disbelieve and
which i think are just numbers that were acquired via some APIs (or more
precisely: via some GUI that claimed that the "latency is now 0.1ms")
and which where never verified via measurements.
