This info/contribution is for the new folks at OCN. All those who have an AMD CPU dual or Quad core, AMD gives an optimizing utility that will boost your duo core or quad cores even if you're already OC'ed. In PCMark04 my CPU score went from 8484 up to 8793 after installation.
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.
