I'm developing a musical application, and I'm valuating the opportunity to buy
Math Kernel Library and/or Integrated Performance Primitives for Windows platform.
I'm using Visual Studio .NET on Windows XP Pro.
I've some questions:
1) If I develop a vectorial algorithm optimized for SSE, this work optimized with all SSE supporting CPU,
like last generation Intel Celeron or AMD Athlon, or work optimized only on Pentium IV and above ?
In other words, if program run on a Athlon, can library automatically detect SSE support
and use them efficiently ?
2) There are any problem / limitation to use, for development and test purpose, a PC with
last generation Centrino or AMD Athlon ?
