Thread: HTEP setting in BIOS

    Default HTEP setting in BIOS

    In the BIOS of every GB board I've had, under the power management section of the BIOS, there is an option HTEP Support and Mode. I am curious mostly about this since for Mode there is 32-bit and 64-bit, and since I run a 64 bit OS was wondering if switching it would make a difference in anything. Also in general what does it do? Thanks!

    High Precision Event Timer

    The HPET can produce periodic interrupts at a much higher resolution than the RTC and is often used to synchronize multimedia streams, providing smooth playback and reducing the need to use other timestamp calculations such as an x86 CPU's RDTSC instruction.

    i leave it on 64 bit,even when in winxp as im dual boot i dont notice any difference,enable it if you have 64 bit os or 32 bit
