I was playing around a few minutes ago and I found out that SSE gets enabled by default now. I decided to see if my A64 would enable SSE by default after adding the -forceSSE flag. Sure enough, SSE is being used. So I figured, well, let's see if it's just my A64. Nope, my 2500+ is using it by default as well. Kudos to Stanford and AMD for fixing the bugs and allowing SSE to be used normally.

Really? Thats cool. Thats really cool as a matter of fact. Ard, does your Laptop support SSE2? I havent heard of what the Mobile A64's have in terms of extensions. I am assuming its the same as the Desktop A64's.
