SIMD stands for Single Instruction, Multiple Data. It is a way for the CPU to speed up operations when dealing with Data. Let's assume you have 10 pieces of Data, you'd normally need to execute the same instruction seperately for each data chunk, wasting time. Using SSE, for exmaple, you can skip 9 of those wasted instructions, and save CPU time for other operations.
