In my case, I have found Windows TB performance to be half-baked even on a laptop that has it integrated into the motherboard: Dell XPS 15 9560.
I have used two TB interfaces, Apollo Twin - which performed on par with a cheap USB interface latency-wise, and the Presonus Quantum 2, which was worse. In both cases, I was using a well-optimized machine with updated drivers.
After switching to the Babyface PRO USB 2.0, latency and stability performance is stellar. Sometimes proven technology is just a better choice.
