According to https://www.rtl-sdr.com/about-rtl-sdr/ :
The maximum sample rate is 3.2 MS/s (mega samples per second). However, the
RTL-SDR is unstable at this rate and may drop samples. The maximum sample
rate that does not drop samples is 2.4 MS/s, however some people have had
luck with 2.8MS/s and 3.2 MS/s working well on some USB 3.0 ports.
Thus, something between 2.0 and 2.4 MS/s would work for you.
Maybe this paper could be of your interest, although it is a little bit
Hope this helps,
