SIMD

All in one, one for all

Single instruction, multiple data are instructions that perform the same operation one a set of data. The sets below is the sets that exist for x86. There was also 3DNow! but AMD killed it off in 2010 so let us speak of it no more. To learn what instruction sets are supported use CPUID at runtime.
