OK, i've written a simple benchmark which implements an elementwise
multiply (A=B*C) in three different ways (standard C, intrinsics, hand
coded assembly). On the face of things the results seem to indicate
that the vectorization works best on medium sized inputs. If people
could post the results of running the benchmark on their machines
(takes ~1min) along with the output of gcc --version and their chip
model, that wd be v useful.

It should be compiled with: gcc -msse -O2 vec_bench.c -o vec_bench

Here's two:
