Anandtech recently released an article that pointed out problems with their CPU reviews due to an enabled High Precision Event Timer in Windows. Some Intel processors suffered from decreased performance in games and other benchmarks. Since then a lot of misconceptions are going around. People are calling out Intel as cheaters when actually the opposite is going on. We take this opportunity to have another look at the HPET bug and finally announce TimerBench, our Windows timer benchmark to the public. It provides proof behind these infamous HPET problems and helps you to test the impact of your timer configuration on your system performance.
