SSE3 (Streaming SIMD Extensions 3), is Intel's third iteration for the SSE x86 instruction set, introduced in 2004 with the Prescott revision of the Pentium 4 CPU. In April 2005 AMD introduced a subset of SSE3 in revision E (Venice and San Diego) of their Athlon 64 CPUs. The 13 new instructions are most processing vectors of floats or doubles, most notable horizontal add and sub inside one 128-bit xmm-register, LDDQU, an alternative misaligned load, which is even quite fast for loads that cross cacheline boundaries , and FISTTP, which is a new x87 instruction .
