1. What do you know about SSE ? Apparently the p III and P 4 have extra
hardware for fp work which is ignored by current compilers but can buy big
factors in speed...
we can code in assembler for it pretty easily if the PIII prcocessors have
2. Apparently there are several optimizing compilers out there (like
portland) which do better than gcc. Any suggestions? Information on costs?
