Oh, and from the first release with Core 2 support:

"""
I just released 3.7.16. There's some misc stuff, but the big news is
that I have added architectural support for the Core2 family (though have
not tuned any assembly for it yet), and this guy is a beast! Looks like
after years of getting schooled by AMD, Intel finally got tired of it.

...

This means Core2 is the fastest floating point x86 ever produced. It ties
the G5, which was previously the best peak performer of any desktop system.
"""

So yeah, we're missing out.
