If you look through the archives from about a year ago you'll see this one
was thrashed out. On at least some of the major platforms you have to go to
the metal, and even then, you don't get guaranteed results (although
probably at least as good as a ten-thousandth of a second.

> The project I'm working on is being coded in c++, but I have been
