SSE2, Streaming SIMD Extensions 2, is one of the Intel SIMD (Single Instruction, Multiple Data) processor supplementary instruction sets first introduced by Intel with the initial version of the Pentium 4 in 2001. It extends the earlier SSE instruction set, and is intended to fully supplant MMX. Intel extended SSE2 to create SSE3 in 2004. SSE2 added 144 new instructions to SSE, which has 70 instructions. Rival chip-maker AMD added support for SSE2 with the introduction of their Opteron and Athlon 64 ranges of AMD64 64-bit CPUs in 2003.

I cannot install my autocad 2010 because it says that my processor is not sse2 compliant. is there a way to install it for free?


Hi

I'm sorry you can not use the program with your old computer, the requirements are.

  • Intel® Pentium® 4 or AMD Athlon® dual-core processor, 1.6 GHz or higher with SSE2 technology
  • 2 GB RAM

If your processor does not have SSe2 technology support, it is too old to run the program, buy a new machine. Or use a older version of autocad. your computer must be around 5 or 10 years old or more. SSE2 has been around since 2003.

SSE2 CPU Support Requirement for AutoCAD 2010 I will try to not geek out and confuse you on this post. With AutoCAD 2010 there is an AutoCAD 2010 System Requirement to have a CPU (essentially the computer’s brain) with SSE2 support. SSE2 is an Intel CPU instruction set (SIMD Extension 2) which is essentially technology to replace the old MMX extensions which are half as slow in many data and math operations. Most current systems will support SSE2 except an old AMD CPU system over 6 years old. AMD Opteron, Athlon 64 both support SSE2 and have since 2003.

So why SSE2 requirement in AutoCAD 2010:

In developing software there is a limit on how old of technology you can effectively support without impacting current hardware and software users. In the case of AutoCAD 2010 adding the SSE2 requirement this increases performance for customers using current hardware. Many areas improve in AutoCAD such as OSNAPs.
I said I would not geek out so I will not go into details on floats, floating point, and registers. Your experience may vary but the change was made for some performance benefit of current hardware.

Bottom Line: Increasing performance is a good thing!

Trying to load elements of CS3 and get error ERROR ''NEED SUPPORT FOR CPU EXTENSION SSE2''


Hi,

Unfortunately, there isn't much you can do about this. Your processor is quite old, and as a result doesn't come with SSE2 built in, which is an instruction set that helps the CPU process data at a faster rate.

Your only option is to purchase a CPU that has SSE2 built in for you to be able to use that program.

Hope I clarified things

I need to run Autocad 2010 on my computer but it won't even instal because I have an AMD 3000+ 2Ghz processor. Is it possible to upgrade the processor without buying a whole new computer?


Autocad 2010 needs SSE2 to run.
The only Semprons which didn't have SSE2 are those for socket A, so I assume you're running a socket A mainboard. I checked and there are no socket A processors that support SSE2 unfortunately.

I think that you could replace your mainboard and the cpu cheaply witha a socket 754 mainboard (which supports SSE2 CPUs and should run with your old ram).

However I advise to upgrade to newer system with AM2 socket or so - they aren't expensive and the increase in performance in power-hungry applications such as AutoCad will be noticeable.

SSE2 instruction set


Use CPUID (CPU-Z) so you'll know the specification of your cpu. This will include all the instruction set of your cpu.

SSE2 instruction set is a new set of instructions that has been built into the processor chips usually to enhance the performance of the computer. If you are using an older computer/processor, (possibly manufactured before 2001, when the SSE2 was introduced) you may not be able to install the applications that require the SSE2 instruction set on your computer.

SSE2 enabled processor


It is most certainly. SSE2 was introduced with the Pentium 4 and all AMD Athlon 64's have it.
