AMD Dual Core Optimizer (NEW)

Recommended Posts

It will work with all Dual Core X2's, Opterons, and there are rumors it even works with Intel Dual Core Duo's. All X2 cpu's are the same btw, all of them are Athlons;)

 

so it does not mater wher you download it from the amd web site.

 

it the same dual core software- posted in different drivers in the amd web site.

 

cool.

 

1 piece software for all dual core software.

 

i thaugh because it was in a different loation under a different cpu type it would not work with my cpu.

 

thanks.

 

 

ill give it a try. i have a program that causes the problem after 4 hours (cpu clock)

 

unless i run in under 1 cpu only, i think it the way it does the call. (programming wise)

 

maybe thil will redirect the old way of calling (programming) and redirect it in the new way .

 

it will only take 4 hours to test if thes new fix works.

 

ill get back to you will my resaults.

 

 

 

cpu clock get the cpu clock via the (TSC) timestampcounter call. and display the cpu clock onscreen without using any cpu time.

 

if i run it on both cpu,s (even with hotfix etc) after 4 jours of being idel or otherwise, it goes out of wack, showing the cpu clock (2400 for my cpu) going up and down 200+ mhz per second.

 

this causes slowdowns in games, and connection problems.

 

(with the ms hotfix off) its worst, but if i run it on 1 cpu , no problems..

 

 

 

1 test 4+ hours with new version of cpu clock has passed (no poroblems now with optimizer) will test with older version of cpuclock. v1.20)

ill get back to you....

 

 

ill need to test for 5+ hours. looking good so far... finished test with old version, it works it has fix the problem.

 

7 hours testing and the program that (even with hotfix+amd cpu) still had the problem - now does not have it any more....

 

this is great. the only way i could use the program was to use xp luncher and load it with 1 core-cpu , but now (with the hot fix - no amd driver) and the optimizer it works..

 

 

test details..

 

(cpu clock) old + new version (uses old tsc call) caused problem visible after 4+ hours) idel or otherwise.

 

hot fix on and active

 

acpi ms cpu drivers (default cpu drivers)

 

amd cpu drivers off

 

cool n quiet off.

 

system is now clocked to 2700 (246 fsbx11 1.55v)

I'll have to try this out when I get back to my dual-core rig. It does sound very interesting...particularly if it can help in HL2 :)

All the dual core patches are only for the Service Pack 2 right? If so i'll have installed SP2. Is this a true statement?

iv tested it with the bf2 + also with cpu clock (old version 1.20) http://www.wg7.com/

 

and the hotfix from ms off [PerfEnablePackageIdle 0 (off)]

 

so. from early conclusions.. it work with the hot fix - off

 

just the amd optimizer (or as im calling - general tsc patch/fix for dual cores)

 

is needed to fix the problem.

 

 

a clean system is needed to test if just the amd optimizer is needed to fix the system problem only.

 

i have a clean windows xp pro + sp2 installed. ill install the amd optimizer and test again, to see if cpuclock will stuff up after 4+ hours of being idel.

 

 

ill get back to you.

 

p.s. results are from my system , other systems and setup may be defferent. you may still need the recommended patches / drivers etc.

Just a quick question regarding this topic. I usually install the AMD Drivers and MS Hotfix prior to installing the chipset drivers on a fresh install. My question is, if I install this driver do i need to install this one first before installing the chipset drivers or vice-versa? Also, do I need to do the regedit and install the MS Hotfix with this driver?

 

Thanks in advance!

ah, from what i understand, you shouldnt install the mshot fix now...

only the new amd drivers and the optimizer...

as for chipset, to be honest, i dont think the order matters.

Well, I took an existing WindowsXP Pro SP2 rig and upgraded from single core to dual core. Installed the AMD dual core processor driver and dual core optimizer months after my chipset drivers were installed and haven't noticed any ill effects. So I'd say that installation order will not be a problem one way or another.

hmm this is starting to get on my nerve to get me to install XP again..... *currently on Vista*

 

 

maybe i should try anyway? :D

All bets are off for Vista. I have no idea how the Dual Core Driver or Dual Core Optimizer will play with that. Maybe partition your hard drive and do a dual boot machine until you confirm whether it works or not.
