CONFIG_APIC_TIMER_TSC

Use invariant TSC for sys_clock_cycle_get_32()

Type: bool

Help

If your CPU supports invariant TSC, and you know the ratio of the
TSC frequency to CONFIG_SYS_CLOCK_HW_CYCLES_PER_SEC (the local APIC
timer frequency), then enable this for a much faster and more
accurate sys_clock_cycle_get_32().

Direct dependencies

(APIC_TIMER && SOC_APOLLO_LAKE) || APIC_TIMER

(Includes any dependencies from ifs and menus.)
