Comment (by viboes):

 I don't know how to explain that QueryPerformanceCounter fails. Maybe the
 following remark could explain it


 On a multiprocessor computer, it should not matter which processor is
 called. However, you can get different results on different processors due
 to bugs in the basic input/output system (BIOS) or the hardware
 abstraction layer (HAL)."

 Anyway. it is surprising that Microsoft doesn't provides stead_clocks on
 their C++11 library implementation (See some post on SO).

 I addition neither gcc nor libC++ provide them on windows as

       clock_gettime(CLOCK_MONOTONIC, &tp);

 is not available.

 What about not providing steady_clock on Windows?
