Does anyone know if the SSE2 optimisations put into lightwave to help with radiosity work on opterons / Athlon 64's? i.e. does Lightwave correctly detect the SSE capabilities on these processors?

Yes for sure... or... I really hope! :D

I dont know if they do, but I do know LW renders faster on a AMD64 than on a comparitive P4 processor, so I definately assume so.

Exception : Is there more info about this somewhere? tests?
I still have hard to beleive that 1 single processor is faster than a P4 with dual (ht) but if it is so that's the one i will buy for sure :)

oh found this that will probably answer my questions
