If you need a high-resolution timer and only x86 platforms (or maybe
x86_64 too), one option would be using the timer available in
http://members.yline.com/~tom_at_work/cpudist.zip (see
http://members.yline.com/~tom_at_work/ for link to documentation and
further information).

A completely platform independent solution included in FPC RTL but with
lower precision is using either Dos.GetTime, Dos.GetMsCount or one of
functions provided in unit SysUtils (e.g. GetLocalTime, Time or Now).
