I wonder if I disable HPET in Windows, does negatively affect sensor reading?
If sensor reading is configured with time repeat span comparable to the time of HPET access and if HPET is actually used in process then HPET manipulations can affect.
No, it doesn’t affect sensor reading accuracy. 99.9% of sensors do not depend on timer resolution at all in any form, and those which depend on timing precision (e.g. frametime measurement) do not benefit that much from extra <10 microsecond accuracy provided by HPET.
