I´m not sure I should post this in this forum, however fail to spot a better place for it. If there is one, I apologise but maybe a moderator can relocate?

I have only two tasks remaining for now - I´m having a slow cruncher, so the difference is immediately obvious - and the Application column for one reads Gamma-ray pulsar search #3 1.11, however the second one states Gamma-ray pulsar search #3 1.11 (FGRPSSE). I know about GPU, for which I don´t have something qualifying. However, these two are on the same LATeah0056C_96 data (as it looks to me, maybe I´m wrong on that).

So, as per the title, what is the difference between those two? I went to and through several pages on site, could not find it though. Just curious of course.

It means that FGRPSSE version uses special CPU(SIMD) instructions and it should be more optimized = faster runtimes.
