Fast Radix-16 divider: One key new technology Intel has incorporated into Penryn is their Fast Radix-16 divider. Intel’s Radix-16 divider is a new divider technique providing double the divider speed over previous processors when handling math computations (both floating-point and integer operations): 4-bits processed per cycle in Penryn versus 2-bits per cycle in today’s processors.
SSE4: Penryn will also support Intel’s new SSE4 instruction set. The majority of the new instructions are focused on compiler optimizations, but Intel has also added a number of “application targeted accelerators” which are hard-coded onto th.......
