Question Question regarding the amd X2 and X4


I was wondering when you guys review amd X2 and X4 processor do you install there processors

AMD Dual-Core Optimizer

AMD Dual-Core Optimizer Version 1.1.4 - The AMD Dual-Core Optimizer can help improve some PC gaming video performance by compensating for those applications that bypass the Windows API for timing by directly using the RDTSC (Read Time Stamp Counter) instruction. Applications that rely on RDTSC do not benefit from the logic in the operating system to properly account for the affect of power management mechanisms on the rate at which a processor core's Time Stamp Counter (TSC) is incremented. The AMD Dual-Core Optimizer helps to correct the resulting video performance effects or other incorrect timing effects that these applications may experience on dual-core processor systems, by periodically adjusting the core time-stamp-counters, so that they are synchronized.
On one of my client machine this made a world of difference in gaming performance for his amd X2 5000 black edition.

I don't know if AMD have anything similar for there Phenom?
