Extending the World's Most Popular Processor Architecture
Continuing the history of innovation, this latest expansion of Intel architecture constitutes the most impactful instructions since SSE2 and represents the next major leap in Intel's fast-paced product innovation.
Building on the already rich Intel® 64 instruction set architecture (ISA), these new instructions will enable our microprocessors across all volume market segments to deliver superior performance and energy efficiency to a broad range of 32-bit and 64-bit applications.
Read this white paper for further detail on the new instructions:
- Streaming SIMD Extensions 4 (SSE4) - provides building blocks for delivering expanded application capabilities, performance, and energy efficiency.
- Application Targeted Accelerators - provides a new foundation for delivering low latency, lower power fixed-function capabilities for targeted applications.
