This may not completely account for it, but try enabling the multimedia
timer on your Windows installs by starting up any application that asks
to use it at a 1ms resolution, such as Windows Media Player. Seeing RTTs
that are either 1ms or 15ms, but never a number in between, is a
tell-tale sign that the MM timer is not currently in use, and as a
result you're getting less accurate, more granular readings.
