Alan,  fair enough, I'll give that a shot.  It would be great to see support for SSE folded into the core VM.   Or is the idea to later (or currently) utilize GPUs as well?

The most recent example of perf benefits can be found here: http://blog.reblochon.org/2010/01/talk-teaser-image-processing-with.html .  A C# SIMD-optimised version of an image processing function turned out to be ~6.5x faster than the native C version. I'd assume that if the native C version was SIMD optimised aswell it'd be on par/faster than the mono implementation, but it does show the power of Mono.SIMD.
