The reason I suggested RDTSC is 
a) that it is easy to implement on all Intel platforms
It takes a minimum of code.
b) for a profiler, relative timings are important. The unit of
measure is not.
It provides accurate comparative timings.
c) Granualarity.

Test programs using RDTSC shatter ones confidence in
PerformanceCounter APIs and GetSystemTime().
