  • so what the hell does tlb patch do?

    Well there are only two things about this bios setting that i know about. 1. its in my cpu configuration 2. when i goggled it the only info i found on it was that it APPARENTLY decreases the performance of whatever cpu has this bios setting on.

    Anyway what the heck is it supposed to do?

    One more thing the CPU im using is the athlon 7750 be if that helps

    Sounds like its the error fixing for AMD cpus. It is a motherboard update that stops a particular error but also supposedly reduces performance.

    Some claim the error is rare, but if encountered may cause a system lockup.

    You could try disabling the patch and see if you encounter problems. As you said it should improve your CPU performance, sometimes in the range of %10 in particular applications.

        For reference... TLB:

        And yes, this does decrease performance of any modern OS using virtual addressing.

          Your 7750 chip is from the B3 stepping and is not affected by the TLB bug. You should turn that setting off in your BIOS.
