New (to me) dual core optimizer

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Released in November, LOL I really need to pay attention to this page:
http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/..._13118,00.html
version:
1.1.1.0135
I had 1.1.1.0083 or something to that nature, just remember the*****83
Here is the readme.rtf with the updates:
Code:
---General Description---

AMD Dual-Core Optimizer utility synchronizes Time Stamp Counter (TSC) MSRs on AMD Dual-Core Processors. 

---Improvement and Fixes---

Version 1.1.1
* AMD Dual-Core Optimizer’s driver has been WHQL tested and signed by Microsoft Corporation.

Version 1.1.0
* 4x4 “Gaming Mode†added.

Version 1.0.0
* This is the initial release.

---Usage Notes---

* Run setup.exe for a full uninstall/install.

* On 4x4 Systems, right click on the AMD logo system tray icon and select “Gaming Mode†in order to turn “Gaming Mode†on/off.

---Known Issues---

* Using AMD Dual-Core Optimizer while running on ATI Radeon Xpress on-board graphics will cause system to lock up while running HCT stress test.  The problem has been identified as an ATI graphics driver issue, and an updated version of the ATI graphics driver will be available sometime in the future to remedy this problem.

* Reports of Blue Screen crash when used with MS Hotfix from KB Article 896256.

* Going into “Gaming Mode†in Windows Vista will create a “cmd†window briefly.

I don't see why it wouldn't work for Opterons, as most of the software that I see for Athlons will work for Opterons as well. I say set a restore point, then try it out, and if it doesn't work then uninstall and restore. However, don't just restore, because the wonderful Windows restore will screw up your registry and leave things behind if you don't uninstall it first. Go figure.

LOL it overclocks it! AMD is so cool! Hey, aren't Opterons server CPUs?
BTW where is Lebanon TN? I live in Jonesboro, which is fairly close to Memphis. I hate this city so much! I am from Little Rock, and I miss it! There are no clubs or music scene in Jonesboro (they all have hip-hop )
