After several hours of reading forums & articles in order to fix my DPC latency issues, I saw disabling HTEP(High Precision Event Timer) was one possible recurring action that users said would result in a slight performance boost & reduced DPC latency. However, some also stated that it should be kept enabled.


With all these mixed signals, what's the deal with HTEP? Should it be enabled or disabled?

It should not be messed with, IMO.....(i.e, enabled, to let WIndows manage it's own time)


Anandtech learned this the hard way in their recent benchmarking fiasco when comparing the 2600-2700X with assorted Intel processors...
