Is it possible to determine the worst case latency (i.e. in micro
or milliseconds) with jackd? Otherwise "cyclictest" gives some
accurate numbers, please check

The situation is that even with PAT support enabled (see other post),
the worst case latency for a high priority task should always stay well
below one millisecond. So if you have high latencies even if not using
any 3D applications, then i suspect some kind of hardware problem.

If you have a PCI IDE controller laying around, you may try that one
instead of the on-board nforce4 IDE controller, just to check if it makes
a difference.
