Yeah, Cant even get my name spelled right! Anyway, its for AMD's. P4's enable sse as a default. 3Dnow gets enabled by default on AMD systems....You will find this out on your Athlon 64. But, in order for the AMD crowd to enable SSE, you would go to the Shortcut in the Start menu, and when you get to the folding@home icon, wherever you put it, right click it, properties, and in the target line, you would put " -forceSSE". And...well heck...lemme cut and paste it for you..."C:\Program Files\Folding@Home\winfah.exe" -forceSSE. Thats what it looks like on my PC. But, your P4's, they are ok. They enable SSE anyway, and some AMD's have trouble doing that, enabling it. So sometimes, the AMD crowd is stuck with 3dnow!. Its better than nothing, but I saw a 30-40% increase probably in my times. But, yeah, this guy here..."P4 boy", he has been hearing it from me for....I dont know how long, about how he needs to ditch the Intel side, and come to the good side....the AMD side. He is finally cooperating, and here soon, if he gets anymore PC's, he will be keeping Ard up at night, cause his crown might be jeopardy. Well, not for awhile anyway, he is kinda out of reach at the moment. But the thing is, when he gets his AMD64, I am going to buy his p4! haha Hey, I am still going to slap some AMD stickers on it!
