Intel AVX on Microsoft Windows Vista

Intel AVX on Microsoft Windows Vista

Dear All,
The Intel AVX instruction set is supported on Microsoft Windows 7 platform. There is no support for AVX development on Microsoft Windows Vista OS even though the processor supports AVX. Is it possible that any additional software / patch be added to the Windows Vista OS so that the system (Vista OS) can support AVX.

Thanks
D

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

According to the information we've been given, it was touch and go as to whether Windows 7 would support AVX (after installing SP1), but there's no chance of a similar SP for Vista.
