Could libjpeg-turbo be any good for XnView?

Post by MiKiL »

From libjpeg-turbo site:
libjpeg-turbo is a high-speed version of libjpeg for x86 and x86-64 processors which uses SIMD instructions (MMX, SSE2, etc.) to accelerate baseline JPEG compression and decompression. libjpeg-turbo is generally 2-4x as fast as the unmodified version of libjpeg, all else being equal.

Could this be any good to test? It does have it's own weaknesses and only accelerates jpeg-operations but still. :)
