Ah ok, i got that one wrong. A quick google search suggests that SSE
is IEEE compliant indeed. What remains true is that SSE is less
precise than non-SSE code for double's because in non-SSE the CPU is
able to use long double's of 80 bit internally to limit propagation of
errors, but I don't know if anything like that applies for floats
(since here we're discussing floats).

I told you i'm not competent ;)
