I just did some benchmarking with single and double precision using
SSE and CPU on a fairly recent machine. Only one SSE function is being
used: _mm_sqrt_ps and _mm_sqrt_pd, respectively.
Using float I get:
Using double I get:
double is almost 4-times slower than float. Seems to me that one
should favor float over double.
I still would like to see boost.simd appear and do some more testing.
