i'm just trying to figure how to measure how much cycles instructions take to complete. i've come to a point where i don't consider RDTSC to be the right thing, since it reads the Time Stamp Counter (TSC) and not the cycle counter.
any ideas? :confused:

The Time Stamp Counter (TSC) is Intel name for what you call "the cycle counter".
