As far as I know my processor should be able to take advantage of the sse3 and sse4 instruction sets but, PCSX2 says that it cannot.
Is PCSX2 actually correct in assuming that my processor doesn't support any higher than sse2? It's fairly new, and according to what I was able to find online, it should.
If PCSX2 is actually wrong, is there any way I can enable the other video plugins?
SSEes including the numbers has a different spelling between AMD and Intel...ppl w/ sharp eyes they know what they pick the right CPU brand.
Main Hub:i5-4670(3.4Ghz Factory Clocked),ATi Radeon HD7770(GDDR5+128-bit+1GB),Win 10 SL(x64),ASUS H8M-E,8GB DDR3 RAM
Despite the similarity of the names, SSE3 is unrelated to SSSE3 and the same is true for SSE4a and SSE4.1.
AMD has to date not implemented the SSSE3 and SSE4.1 instruction sets on any of their CPUs.
Therefore the recommended GSdx version for AMD users is the SSE2 one.
There is a minor speed loss, but it is only about 10% overall.
CPU : I7 2600K Oc'ed @ 4.2Ghz

Ahh, I see. Those names are really similar, it's no wonder I got confused.
Thanks for the help, as long as it's not going to make a huge difference I suppose it doesn't matter.
Another point is that intel follows the Float Op spec more indepth than AMD, which PCSX2 takes advantage of with Intel cpu's.
