      UCI Chess Engine - SSE3 CPU Instruction set


      --- Info ---

      Streaming SIMD Extensions 3 (SSE3) is supported by

    • Intel CPU : Pentium 4 processors (“Prescott”) and later processors.
    • VIA CPU : Nano and later processors.
    • AMD CPU : AMD Athlon 64 (“revision E”), AMD Phenom and later processors.

      This means most, but not quite all, x64 capable CPUs should support SSE3.

      You can use Arena GUI for play with ECE or use PolyGlot (UCI2WB) for run ECE in Winboard

      ECE Works also in Chessbase, ChessPartner, Chess Assistant or Chessmaster (with polyglot).
