CONFIG_TSC_CYCLES_PER_SEC

Frequency of x86 CPU timestamp counter

Type: int

Help

The x86 implementation of LOAPIC k_cycle_get_32() relies on the x86 TSC. This runs at the CPU speed and not the bus speed. If set to 0, the value of CONFIG_SYS_CLOCK_HW_CYCLES_PER_SEC will be used instead; many MCUs these values are the same.
