Does a roadmap exist showing the release of Intel SIMD instructions (SSE, AVX) relative to processor family and date of release? The question I am trying to answer is "If I release software using an Intel SIMD vector instructions at future date X, what SIMD instruction set should I target to insure the maximum installed base?" I'd like to maximize the installed base available for my software, and want to align my roadmap with Intel's so I can have support for future releases available when they hit the street. Thanks!
