"Another big advantage of x86-64 is the inclusion of SSE and
SSE2 into the core instruction set. This means that every 64-bit
capable x86 processor will feature SSE and SSE2, and that compilers
can make use of those extensions. Software that can take advantage
of these instructions can get a large performance benefit if these
instructions are used."
