View Full Version : SSE Emulation - What does it mean ?
March 2nd, 2004, 12:24
I know that can be a stupid question, I'm a newbie of 1964 and looking to the emulation options I found that the SSE Emulation is set to NO because the hardware can't support it.
What does it mean ??? What is SSE Emulation referred to ???
Thanks in advance for each answer.

SSE are a set of instructions supported by the processor you have. Lets say you have an AMD Athlon. The AMD Athlon supports MMX, 3D now, 3D now extended and SSE. Older processors dont have SSE support AFIAK, perhaps you are using one of them right now :p

Thanks Elly for yuor explanation.
Infact I have an AMD Duron but it's not so dated as I may think, I have it since 2001.....it's possible that is already so old ????

SSE is intel's own SIMD Floating Point instructions. AMD didn't incorporate SSE into their CPUs until the Palomino core (duron and athlonxp).
If you're already getting good enough spped don't worry about it. SSE just increases FPU speed (calculating decimal numbers, vertex calculation).

I'm not so sure to have so much speed.
I have an AMD Duron 600 Mhz, 384 MB sdram and a graphic card Abit with 128 MB ram.
Can it be good ???
Sometimes the emulation it's not so fluent as I would, can i do something ??

what kinda of graphics card do you have, oh and you might want to get some more ram...the processor could be a little better too.
