    Short for Streaming SIMD Extensions, SSE is a processor technology that enables single instruction multiple data. On older processors only a single data element could be processed per instruction. However, SSE enables the instructions to handle multiple data elements. SSE (SIMD technology) is used in intensive applications, like 3D graphics, making processing much faster. SSE technology was designed to replace MMXtechnology.
