AMD Dual-Core Optimizer Version 1.1.4


Recommended Posts

Just seen this over at AMD's site will be useful for those with athalon as your processor in your laptop:

AMD Dual-Core Optimizer Version 1.1.4 - The AMD Dual-Core Optimizer can help improve some PC gaming video performance by compensating for those applications that bypass the Windows API for timing by directly using the RDTSC (Read Time Stamp Counter) instruction. Applications that rely on RDTSC do not benefit from the logic in the operating system to properly account for the affect of power management mechanisms on the rate at which a processor core's Time Stamp Counter (TSC) is incremented. The AMD Dual-Core Optimizer helps to correct the resulting video performance effects or other incorrect timing effects that these applications may experience on dual-core processor systems, by periodically adjusting the core time-stamp-counters, so that they are synchronized.

It was realeased a few days ago.. i think the 15th... i got it then... didnt thing it was such a big deal..

On a side note.. i wish theyd update the Vista x86/x64 processor driver... nothing i do helps... processor constantly running at 3ghz... gaming (yes i know 100% is good its just an example)... web browsing... idle! sucking up power like no-ones business.... $200 power bill (damn u 850watt power supply...)
