On the one hand, the Streaming SIMD Extensions
(SSE) are used for some of the dimensions of the sequence (y and time), to reduce the number of floating point instructions, exploiting Data Level Parallelism.
He pointed out that the Streaming SIMD Extensions
3 instructions in the Intel platform were unique to Xeon.
It is fully compatible with previous x86 processors and provides plenty of features like support for MMX technology and for streaming SIMD extensions
, thus ensuring very good floating point performance.
Other features include a 100MHz system bus, 256Kb full-speed Advanced Transfer Cache and Streaming SIMD extensions
for higher system performance.
Users performing multimedia creation tasks (video coding, MP3 ripping) will likely see some gain from the P4's new Streaming SIMD Extensions
2 (SSE2) instructions, provided the application being used takes advantage of them.
All Fire GL professional graphics accelerators are fully optimized for Intel's Streaming SIMD Extensions
(SSE) and AMD Athlon(TM) processor-based systems with 3DNow
Innovative extensions to the Intel Streaming SIMD Extensions
4 (SSE4) that enhance XML, string, and text processing performance
Most people are aware that x86 processors contain streaming SIMD extensions
(SSE) that allow multiple operations to occur in parallel within the processor.
Both models incorporate Internet Streaming SIMD extensions
- advanced microprocessor instructions which combine with the processors' faster CPU speeds to increase performance over previous versions.
Oxygen VX1 utilizes the new 3Dlabs PowerThreads(TM) SSE OpenGL driver to leverage the Intel(R) Pentium(R) III and Pentium III Xeon(TM) Streaming SIMD extensions
for optimal geometry and lighting performance, as well as providing proven, certified support for professional applications.
