Internal Intel documents reveal that SSE4 is on the way and will be here with Conroe

Several internal memos and roadmaps from Intel confirmed what many of us already suspected: Intel's Conroe (and Merom) will feature SSE4.  The next generation SSE instructions were listed as part of the the platforms "Significant Video Enhancements" built into the upcoming Intel platforms.  

Among the other video enhancements listed included Clear Video Technology (CVT) -- Intel's attempted answer to ATI Avivo -- and UDI support.  Both of these technologies seem dependant on the 965 core logic and not necessarily the CPU.  Other Intel corporate roadmaps have defined CVT as:

Intel Clear Video Technology supporting advanced decoding, post-processing capabilities and enhanced 3D

The Conroe platform and most of its features have not been disclosed yet.  Intel is expected to announce the Conroe architecture name at the Intel Developer Forum on March 7th.

Actually Adobe Premiere Pro pretty much requires it. There is considerable performance increase here - and this is true for many prosumer software out there.

This is why Anandtech should stop using Premiere 6/7 for the benchmarks. Start using a more recent versions of the applications like After Effects and Premiere.

Actually, no that' s a horrible idea. WHen people buy a system, they don't consider buying ALL NEW software to be a prerequisite. If that is the case, then taking the P4 for example, we can't say a $400 P4 has score : X in a benchmark, we have to call it a $2560 P4 (or whatever applies per software) since it would be manditory to buy the software to get the performance.

If anything, benchmarks are already using software that is too new. People just do not continually upgrade their software, particularly the expensive titles and businesses do it even less often except in a production environment.
