id software: Intel Coconspirator?

A website recently released a controversial patch to one of the leaders of the 3d computer gaming revolution, Quake III. The website, NewAgeOC, claims that its dynamic link libraries (DLLs) boost performance on this veteran first-person-shooter for certain AMD processors by 30% or more. This significant performance gain is allegedly brought about by correcting SIMD optimizations in the Quake III engine for the AMD lines of Athlon and Athlon XP processors.
