Yes. Current version reduces it from 4 to 2.
I've read that people use SSE to speed it up. Maybe I consider

When doing these optimizations it is always dependent on the
expected input which is a pity when optimizing library functions.
These must work in all cases and should only be less efficient
for very good reason.
I'm looking forward to Fastware.
