CPU extensions not properly detected
# Pcsx2 version: pcsx2-beta-872
# cpu options : EERec on, VU0 and VU1 on, MTGS on, Limit on.
# Plugins used: GSdx SSE2 0.1.14, SPU2 1.1.0, Lilypad 0.9.9, Gigaherz's CDVD 0.7.0
# Description: On startup PCSX2 properly detects MMX, SSE, SSE2, and SSE3.
It does not detect SSSE3 or SSE41. My current processor is a Phenom 9600 Black Edition, which according to AMD's site supports SSSE3 and SSE4.1. I have verified this with cpu-z (on the assumptions that cpu-z is reliable), and it reports those features on the chip.

Attached is a screenshot of the pcsx2 output on startup, correctly detecting the processor, and incorrectly detecting the cpu extensions.

If I have somehow made a mistake, please let me know. I've tried everything I can think of, and have come to the conclusion that it is simply a software issue.

If anything additional is needed, do let me know.

SSSE3 is Intel only. SSSE3 is NOT SSE3. AMD processors also do not support SSE4.1 completely, only some of the instructions and it is known as SSE4a or whatever.

No, those features are not supported with your cpu.

SSSE3 is Intel ONLY, as is sse4.1, so it's a false positive on cpu-z
Thank you for the replies.
