im going to work on gsdx, also you said that contributions are welcome, and you only have sse2 cpu, ill set my goal to allow sse2,ssse3,sse4.1, and avx. also, how does multithreaded vu1 work? is vu1 on a seperate thread with vu0 on the other and gs on another? i dont get it

also i thought about what if pcsx2 used a 4th thread. ee/core on one thread,gs on another, vu on another, and gif,sif,vif,etc. on the 4th one depending on which one is fastest / most useful. would it speed up pcsx2 on a quad core or hexa/eight core?

You can start reading the developer blog

tl;dr: you can not easily multithread the ps2 parts. Everything that could be done is probably already done.

Forget about the thread stuff.

On sse/avx topic. To keep simple, I think it would be better to create only 2 builds (drop sse2+).
1/ see2
2/ avx1 (that enable also all see extensions)

It will cover most of the market this way.

Normally I remove all codeblock compilation files from the source
