Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX, also known as Sandy Bridge New Extensions) are extensions to the x86 instruction set architecture for microprocessors from Intel and AMD proposed by Intel in March 2008 and first supported by Intel with the Sandy Bridge processor shipping in Q1 2011 and later on by AMD in Q3 2011.
To put it as simple as possible, AVX provides new features, new instructions and a new coding scheme to allow for better performance.
There are a couple ways to determine if your processor includes AVX instructions on each platform. Try the steps below for our suggestion on accomplishing this.PC - Windows
Below is a short list of CPUs with AVX. If you do not see your system here, you may need to look online for it's specifications with the above instructions.
Note: Not all CPUs from the listed families support AVX. Generally, CPUs with the commercial denomination "Core i3/i5/i7" support them, whereas "Pentium" and "Celeron" CPUs don't.AMD:
