AMD silently launches Dual-Core Optimiser

The predecessor of Reverse-HT available for download

A SLOVAKIAN FRIEND sent us a link to an AMD web site where a new utility can be found and downloaded.

It is the first improvement to Chimpzilla's dual-core offerings of a bundle, so expect a lot of software and BIOS updates coming in July.

Intended for all owners of dual-core processors, AMD Dual-Core Optimizer is a piece of software that allegedly improves gaming performance by bypassing Windows' API in some specific situations.

This utility helps that software access the RDTSC instruction directly, in order to correct the Time Stamp Counter on separate cores. It effectively keeps both cores working in parallel and reduces the differing video performance effects, or any other flaws that relate to timing situations in dual-core or upcoming multicore processors.

You can find and download the utility using our complementary L'Inq.
