Python 3.5 has a new C function _PyTime_GetSystemClock() which uses the new _PyTime_t type. It now has a resolution of 1 nanosecond.

Sorry, I don't have Windows 8 at home, so I cannot work on this issue.

I guess that we should check at runtime if GetSystemTimePreciseAsFileTime() is available, as we did for GetTickCount64() in the past:

hKernel32 = GetModuleHandleW(L"KERNEL32");
*(FARPROC*)&Py_GetTickCount64 = GetProcAddress(hKernel32,

Is there any Windows developer interested to write a short patch to implement it?
