gettimeofday has microsecond resolution. And on most platforms you
actually do get good resolution from it.
QueryPerformanceCounter is win32 only, and it has variable resolution,
as determined by QueryPerformanceFrequency. (obviously as above the Xeon
claims 3B/s while Athlon is only 3.5M/s)
But that is just the finest resolution they can show, you still need to
test to see what the resolution they can give you.
On my dual Xeon I get Freq=2399360000 =2.4B/s In testing, the call
overhead seems to be about .35us, so the resolution is just < 1us.
