Default Re: I'm not quite sure I understand Tom.

It's to do with SSE, not SSE2 which Q3 doesn't support.

There is a patch for Athlon XP/64 processors that enables the use of SSE in Q3. The problem was Q3 was made to search for Pentium!!! or greater (while still pentium) as they were the opnly processors out at the time that had SSE.

The performance on AXP/A64 processors is much better when this patch is used, but no, the XP's still don't deserve there ratings when compared to the P4'C's or moreso, the A64's.
