You must be talking about the time that a thread can run before it is 
pushed out by other threads?  I know I've seem many x 10,000 context 
switches in some cases, i.e. look at very high interrupt rates
etc. so I guess I'm not sure what you are measuring..

at one time the scheduling quantum was independent of Hz.
I am not sure how true that is now..
