Default FireWire vs USB Audio Cards

For many years, I've used an older M-Audio soundcard/audio interface that connected to my computer via FireWire (the 6 connector, as seen here

I'm building a new PC, and considering a new audio interface. Do modern USB audio interfaces work as well as the older FireWire interfaces? On my older computer, I can run 50+ tracks with effects and essentially zero latency. My worry with USB is increased latency and/or the audio interface struggling to deal with lots of throughput.

Are my worries unfounded? Is anyone else using a modern USB audio interface with lots of tracks, effects, and getting little to no latency?

Thanks much for your input!
