Ray there is a thread on CN about SGP and the 1600. Sam from ZWO jumped in and gave an explaination on how the 1600 uses and manages usb3, worth reading.
Also Rista seemed to traced his SGP hang problems to his habit of paging through collected images while a sequence was running, something i do not do. I suppose having lots of memory and storage encourages turning everything on. Coming from a programming background when memory and storage were very limited, i tend to do one thing at a time using as little resource as i can.

Some of their (CN's), testing seems to drifting towards exploring the limitations of the camera in areas like 3nm narrowband subs of 900s+ duration at zero gain. I guess if you suffer under extreme light pollution that might seem to be a good idea but no relevance for me. I like to be able to shoot reasonable narrowband with 60" subs. Certainly points out the flexibility of the camera i suppose, but their maybe others better suited to that operation mode.
