These files are relatively unstable and are only made available for people who need their low-latency benefits if the general files don’t suffice for tasks such as audio recording.
Again, the recommendation is to always use generic first and only try lowlatency if your performance isn’t good enough for certain tasks.

So long as your new kernel didn’t break anything, you can now enjoy improved performance, better efficiency, support for more hardware, and potential new features.
If you want to get even closer to the latest-released stable kernel, you can enable the testing repo which will give you access to major new releases roughly two to four weeks early.
To do this, open the file located at , and then uncomment (delete the pound symbols from the front of each line) the three lines associated with testing.
