Intel i7-4790 running at 3.6 GHz

all WSJT-X users,
we are looking into some performance enhancements that will take
advantage of some parallel processing features of modern CPU
architectures. In order to gauge how much backwards compatibility
for older CPUs we will have to implement it would help to know who
is using such older processors. Please don't turn this thread in
to a mine is better than yours conversation, all I need to know is
who or how many of you are using the older CPU architectures. Note
that this applies to MS Windows, Intel Linux, and Intel macOS
users, it is about CPUs not operating systems.
The technology we will use is called AVX and that is present on
all Intel CPUs branded Core i3/i5/i7/i9 (circa 2010 to present),
it is also present on AMD CPUs since the Jaguar or Puma based CPU
models (some late Athlon-II CPUs, all Zen based CPUs, including
Ryzen) circa 2013 to present.
Notably Intel CPUs branded Celeron, Pentium, or Atom do not
support the AVX technology.
So in summary, look up your CPU and if it **does not support AVX**
let me know.
