Disable or not HPET on Windows 10 v1809 (Intel CPU) ?

Jump to solution

Hi everyone,

A few days ago, I was checking about HPET on Wiindows 10 and there's a lot of contradictions to know wether we have to disable HPET on BIOS (and OS too) or not.

Indeed, I need answers for my case because I have a PC modern configuration (see below) and I especially have a Intel CPU. All answers I have found in my search concerned only older AMD Cpu or Ryzen.

Of course, I have checked on prompt command if HPET is off or not, and it's off. So Windows 10 doesn't use it.

Because I want to get more performance, or should I say stability since HPET gives us some benefits for gaming experience. My PC is dedicated only for gaming, to be clear.

Does HPET desactivated on BIOS give me more performance/stability or not ?

My PC (Desktop System) :

  • OS : Windows 10 April 2018 update (1809 - OS build 17763.55)
  • Motherboard : GIGABYTE Z370 HD3P version 1.0 - BIOS version F8
  • CPU : Intel core i5 8600K 3.60 Mghz (Coffee Lake - 8th Generation)
  • Graphic Card : Asus TOG Strix AMD RX 580 8 GB OC version
  • PSU : FSP S Raider 750W - 80+ Silver
  • Memory : DDR4 Corsair LPX vengeance 16 GB - 2100Mhz : 4 slots of 4 GB
  • Driver version installed : AMD Radeon Adrenalin software 18.11.1
  • Display : Acer KG271A "27 - connected to my PC with DisplayPort with a refresh mode set at 144 Mhz
  • Case : Be Quiet Base 600 - black edition

Well, this is an AMD forum, so you may do better asking on Intel forum and/or a dedicated OS forum, 'tenforums.com' for example.

Ryzen 5 5600x, B550 aorus pro ac, Hyper 212 black, 2 x 16gb F4-3600c16dgtzn kit, Aorus gen4 7000s 2tb, Nitro+RX6900XT, RM850, Win.10 Pro..
