AVX implementation?

AVX implementation?

Can we expect an AVX version in the feature? Or AVX will be overkill for this kind of application?

The current version of Embree operates on individual rays and demonstrates very good performance with SSE. AVX will not give a significant speed improvement for single ray traversal.AVX does definitely make sense with a packet ray tracer that handles multiple rays in a ray packet, however, Embree does not support this mode of operation.
