Difference between GSdx SSE2 and SSE4
I just wanted to know what's the advantage of using the SSE4 instead of the SSE2 (or the SSSE3). I have always used SSE4 since pcsx2 detects it, but i don't really know it's advantages. Is it just faster? Or has it got less bugs or something? Would someone be kind enough to give me a simple and easy explanation?TongueTongue Thanks.

SSSE3 and SSE4 comprise more or less useful instructions that can make games run faster. Extra instruction sets are meant to make multimedia apps and files run more efficiently, though instruction sets can be worth using for types of applications other than multimedia.
