    I was wondering how Windows handles high res timers, if at all. The
    reason I ask is because I have been reverse engineering a Windows ASIO
    driver, and I find that if the latency is set below about 5ms, by
    examining the kernel timer queue with SoftICE I can see that several
    kernel timers with 1ms period are created. (Presumably the sound card's
    interval timer is used for longer periods).

    But, I have seen people mention in the "singing capacitor" threads on
    this list that Windows uses 100 for HZ.

    So, how do they implement 1ms timers with a 10ms tick rate? Does
    Windows dynamically reprogram the PIT as well?
