I've noticed this on several other modern systems too, AMD and Intel.
One contact told me that it's a frequent occurence in modern hardware.

I just installed a fresh installation of amd64 on another athlon box. I
find that the clock seems to be drifting by 8-10 seconds every day. Any
idea how I can fix this drift. This drift seems to be large.
My solution, if you can call it that, is just running rdate in
cron.daily. Considering it takes all the 10 seconds of time setting up,
the solution is reasonable. Just install rdate with aptitude/apt-get,
the command format should be self explanatory. There are also other
options to time syncing, but I have found this to be a good combination
of simplicity and functionality.
