Only two things I can think of are to try the TSC timer as well, but sort
of doubt that will change anything. The other is if there is any CPU
frequency speed reduction when idle (PowerNow!) settings in the BIOS try
disabling that functionality. IIRC some of these had the ability for
different cores/cpus to run at slightly different frequencies to reduce
power consumption and this can really confuse the OS.
