    Greetings, friends. Micro stutters and FPS decreases are typical in video games. There are a number of options for dealing with this, one of which is to disable HPET. Since 2005, the HPET (High Precision Event Timer) has been a part of PCs. It was previously known as Multimedia Timer. It's a hardware timer for PCs that Intel and Microsoft collaborated on. The HPET generates periodic interruptions with far greater precision than the RTC. It's frequently used for synchronizing multimedia streams, as well as smoothing playback and decreasing the need for other timestamp calculations.
    For many users, changing the HPET parameters improved gaming performance. Guys, I'd like to know if this information is correct.
