    Yes, according to
    <http://www.amd.com/products/cpg/athlon/techdocs/pdf/22466.pdf>.
    AMD added several intructions in Athlons including movntq, sfence and
    prefetchnta/t0/t1/t2.
    The last 4 instructions are what I call "SSE prefetch" (they could
    called MMXEXT prefetch instead, but it's not much better).
