I have a passion for games programming so this one really rings close
for me. The tricky thing is that early SSE and AVX instructions have to
fill and use the entire register - it's only AVX512 that starts to allow
partial filling, so things like packed 3-dimensional vectors are a
little difficult to manage. One can't just add a dummy 4th component
because then storage won't behave as expected.
