Which Binary? The 2.1.73 I don't believe uses ATLAS and so should be
generic... Even if it does use atlas, it probably uses a 3.6.0 version
that doesn't use SSE3 and so the SSE2  instruction is probably in your
new AMD and so there should be no issue running this version of octave..
There'll be a new windows installer available soonish and there has been
much recent work with octave under msvc and so I'd suggest checking back
at octave-forge regularly for an update..
