Background


SSE3 is the third iteration of the SSE instruction set for the IA-32 (x86) architecture.


The most notable change is the capability to work horizontally in a register, as opposed to more or less strictly vertical operation of all previous SSE instructions.


QuarkXPress 10 requires a processor offering the SSE3 instruction set. In case of old machines which do not have the SSE3 instruction set, QuarkXPress 10 installation will fail.
