Fixing TwinTurbo issues
Some of you have reported that twinturbo does not work. Here is the fix:
Opened Command Prompt with Administrator rights and enter this:
You can undo by entering:
From the benchmarks i tested off vantage, you can see the performance difference after this fix.
Before fix, twinturbo function would get lower benchmark scores:
After fix, twinturbo is functioning properly:
This has been tested on the G73Jh and should work for other models that have the turbo option. please let me know if you have had success with this fix and post some screen shots with your model here to further validate the fix.
Why does this occur? Windows 7 systems by default use the Time Stamp Counter (TSC), rather than the High Precision Event Timer (HPET) as the default timer during program execution. We are essentially enabling the HPET

you should do some benchmarks to compare before and after. turbo off and on. then compare it to turbo on and off after the platformclock is on.

This is primarily for 1st gen i7 people. No reason for 2nd Gen (SandyBridge) folks, but no harm doing this either. SW/SX folks don't have a TwinTurbo option. Too bad.

Bonus, if you have the ATK package installed and power4gear installed, press the middle of the 3 buttons decicated buttons, you should see it come on or off onscreen. As Brian noted, the only way to know for sure it is increasing performance is to benchmark before and after doing the fix. From what I read it only gives a modest clock boost, If you want more OC on CPU you will need other tools installed, http://www13.plala.or.jp/setfsb/
I am not advocating this (sefsb) BTW

What settings do you use in 3dmark, all my numbers came up, but my score was 0 for some reason...You Heard It From - ']['he (())riginal - ']['.(()).

My results seem to contradict yours.
g73jh with i720, HD5870 and 8 gigs ddr3 1333
Cat version 11.8 early preview
Win 7 hp x64
benchmark 3DMark 11 Basic
Twinturbo off, timer = TSC (default), no overclocking
RESULTS Click Me (3DMark Score P2233 - Physics Score 3781)
Twinturbo on, timer = TSC (default), no overclocking
RESULTS Click Me (3DMark Score P2242 - Physics Score 3936)
Twinturbo off, timer = HPET (fix), no overclocking
RESULTS Click Me (3DMark Score P2222 - Physics Score 3592)
Twinturbo on, timer = HPET (fix), no overclocking
RESULTS Click Me (3DMark Score P2229 - Physics Score 3724)
Twinturbo on, timer = HPET (fix), GPU overclocked to 800/1100MHz & CPU overclocked by editing pll registries with setfsb (1755MHz on all 4 cores with full load)
RESULTS Click Me (3DMark Score P2490 - Physics Score 3828)
Twinturbo off, timer = TSC (default), GPU overclocked to 800/1100MHz & CPU overclocked by editing pll registries with setfsb (1755MHz on all 4 cores with full load)
RESULTS Click Me (3DMark Score P2495 - Physics Score 3944)
As seen here by my results the best performance is obtained by leaving TT off, the timers on the normal TSC, GPU @ 800/1100MHz and CPU overclocked via increased blck. Although it only gave a 5 point improvement in total score 2490 < 2495 it gave a 116 point increase in physics (cpu) score 3944 > 3828.
I am aware that some people mainly setfsb users are experiencing timing issues and if that is the case changing to HPET timing might help. As for me and I will assume other people who have the same rig and are not experiencing sync issues IMO it is better to leave the timer alone and forget about Asus TT.
