SSE3
#1
hi guys!
is there ever going to be a chance for AMD users to get SSE3 and SSE4 a support for pcsx2?
i think its mean to give the intel cores the advantage here... would it change something anyway and is it possible at all?

same thing for graphics?!

thx in advance!Biggrin

For two feature you ask, you already got answer those are obsolete and useless features. For grapich card is still speculation or just wait for new programmer.

no, because AMD doesn't support SSSE3 and SSE4, (but the latest AMD's support a variation {that isn't the same} called SSE4a {the SSE4 version of gsdx won't work with it})

well, that's the way it is (dissappointing isn't it Closedeyes )

He didn't say SSSE3 btw, he said SSE3 - which Amd has had since Athlon 64.
They are both used in pcsx2.

well, thx so far. would it be of any use to enable SSE 4.a? since it is a minor copy of the original SSE4.1 and AMD s got it for years now. is there just ANYTHING an AMD user could profit from? (referring to AMD Capabilities), e.g. 3DNow2 or else?

The reason the plugins don't use SSE3 or SSE4a is because those instruction sets have nothing useful to PS2 emulation, unlike SSSE3 and SSE4.1, which have several useful instructions to make use of for PS2 emulation.

If you want to blame anyone, blame AMD for being bad =P

SSE3 isn't used...

Nothing wrong with AMD... There CPU's do what they're supposed to.. Intel are just more versatile, however AMD offer better price/performance.

PCSX2 has SSE3 in it, not SSSE3, as above thats gsdx only. There is also a couple of SSE4 instructions to make things much quicker on the VU Rec's. If there is nothing useful in the instruction set, it won't get added, simple as that
