Originally posted by: Unknown AMD Dual-Core Optimizer - 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.
basicly it means that in some older program's, it will help run better with duel core. it will not effect all programs. like when i run Bf1942, i get major hangups on a 3800 duel core. but with the optimiser in, it works (almost, although that is not the fault of processor/optimisers) fine.
Work requires research. thus, the Camthraxinator has returned.AYB
