    CPU Instruction Sets; Just How Important Are They?

    johnt53984649 Level 2

      I've been looking at the following processor:

      ARK | Intel® Core™ i7-5960X Processor Extreme Edition (20M Cache, up to 3.50 GHz)


      I've heard that the SSE4.1 Instruction set is important for Adobe Premiere Pro CC to utilize.  However, I don't know the following:


      How important is that specific instruction set for Adobe Premiere Pro CC?

      The specs say that is has the following:

      Instruction Set Extensions: SSE4.2, AVX 2.0, AES

      Does Adobe Premiere Pro use SSE4.2 in place of SSE4.1, considering that this processor (5960X) does not have SSE4.1?

      Are there any other instruction sets that Adobe Premiere Pro specifically utilizes?  If so, where can I get this information from?
