Sorry, I don't know.

In my opinion smaller buffer sizes would remove latency as the buffer would fill faster and rtlsdr_read_sync would returns sooner but this would add an additional overhead as rtlsdr_read_sync would be called more often, and bigger buffer sizes would add latency but remove the overhead.

Hope this helps.
