I may be wrong, but isn't the Time Stamp Counter (TSC) the on-chip counter that the Performance Counter uses?

Read an article at the Programmer's Workshop titled, "selecting timer functions" that makes reference to, but does not discuss, a timer function they refer to as Time Stamp Counter (TSC). Does anyone have any info on this function and/or can point to a resource that does.

Thanks

-P.S. I know about other timer functions, such as Performance Counter, GetTickCount, etc., so I'm really only interested in info on the TSC.
