    Maybe I'm missing something, but you ought to be worried if the timer was hard locked to 15.6, not to 1.0 :) Now, in all fairness you having it set to 1.0 will impact battery as the expense of having more (subjectively theoretical) performance and (unquestionably real) lower latency, which is beyond welcome for anyone who works with audio.

    On the timer resolution note, I do hope that ThrottleStop can eventually allow adjustments on the whole 0.5-15.6 range. I've been using that tool you linked for years now and having the possibility to integrate the same functionality on a single software package would be quite handy.
    I'm yet to find out why my desktop defaults to 1.001 rather than 1.000, though. (when not using the tool)

    Your desktop defaults to 1.000 but reports a slightly higher value. It's also rounding up, if you use powercfg to generate an energy report you'll see a reported value of 1.0007 for example. (with requested value of 1.0000).

    The interesting bit is that my laptop (on the sig) had perfect 1.000, and it couldn't have been due to OS as that happened on both Windows 7 and 8.x.

    It's supposed to be 15.6ms, at which point I would have been able to get better battery experience. I know at one point it was at 15.6ms because forcing it with TS7 and then TS8 caused no end of benefits to me.

    I think that's a rounding function; like why it's 15.6ms and not 16ms

    It was all part of my master plan. Create a unique program that many users cannot be without. The Y510P and Y50 are much better laptops when ThrottleStop is running.
    Thanks for the positive feedback as well as showing us how to hunt down timer resolution issues.

    I have tried again, but something has changed...
    [​IMG]
    just open it, the PL1 changes to 11W and PL2 appread
    [​IMG]
    TPL shows PL1 set 11 and PL2 set 14. Turbo time limit seems to be wrong.
    [​IMG]
    when I stress the CPU and IGP, at first every thing goes normally, CPU package is about 4.4W.
    [​IMG]
    This time, the time keeps longer. However frequency goes down at last. The temp is also lower than the last, 82℃.
    [​IMG]
    The ratio has changed in few seconds.
    [​IMG]
    The ratio goes to 9x
    [​IMG]
    The ratio decrease 1x at once. But if it is lower than 6x, it will change to fractional part.
    [​IMG]
    At last, the frequency is baout 64MHz. The screenshots has something wrong....
    [​IMG]
    Then, the ratio will increase. The frequency will be 64~300MHz unsteadily.
    [​IMG]
    When I stop the stress, the ratio will be increase, one ratio at once in few seconds.
    GPU clock is always 620MHz, never changed.

    maybe the information can help you....
    In fact, this tablet is just $80, very cheap...

    On the right side of ThrottleStop look in the CMod column. That reports Clock Modulation throttling and at one point it is down to the minimum which is 12.5. That will make your tablet run very slow. On the left side of ThrottleStop, try setting that to 100.0 and put a check mark in that box.

    I would also check the Set Multiplier option and set that to 22 for your CPU. The Voltage ID will not work correctly unless Set Multiplier is checked.

    If your tablet crashes it is because you have set your voltage too low. Set your voltage to the maximum before clicking on Set Multiplier. Do not lower your voltage unless you have done some stability testing like Prime95 or a similar stress testing program.

    Edit - Can you run CPU-Z and go to the About tab and click on the Save Report (.TXT) button and then show me or send me that information. I just need to see these lines.
    Code:
        MSR 0x000001FC        0x00000000    0x0044005E
        MSR 0x00000606        0x00000000    0x000A0E03
        MSR 0x00000601        0x00101414    0x800002A8
        MSR 0x00000610        0x804281D6    0x00DC8178
