Likewise my own testing has always found that the Athlon really doesn't care
much how you order instructions. If you think about it AMD have spent years
dealing with everyone optimising for random intel processor of the year and
adapted appropriately. Except on things like 3dnow and prefetch stuff the
AMD really doesn't seem to care.
