No drivers but here's the quote and it makes sense after reading it again cause he's denying what AMD states so I guess IT DOESN"T hey this is MS so I trust it

SSE / Non-SSE Considerations and Myths

According to a forwarded internal memo from AMD, substituting the Palomino for a standard Thunderbird in an existing setup will not allow to make optimal use of the SSE potential of the Palomino, meaning that the operating system needs to be freshly installed with the Palomino running as CPU. Likewise, substituting a Thunderbird for the Palomino if the latter was used for the installation of the OS will hurt the performance of the Thunderbird. In one sentence, regardless of which way the OS was installed or whether the CPU was switched in between applications, all benchmark scores came out identical (within the margins of error), in other words, it doesn't matter at all.
