    Make sure you benchmark FPU intensive use when testing USE_3DNOW. I've
    seen several situations where it looks marginally better until you
    actually measure two things - memory bandwidth available to user
    programs, and also FPU performance, especially of FPU heavy apps that
    schedule a lot (eg Quake)
