Julia equivalent of Python's "fsum" for floating point summation

This is so great. :slight_smile:

That’s entirely possible. Newer chips have much more capable SIMD vectorization units. The newest instruction sets are AVX2 (most new laptop chips) and AVX512 (only on beefy Xeon server chips). You can check which instruction sets your chips implement in the “flags” fields of /proc/cpuinfo (on Linux) or sysctl -a | grep machdep.cpu.features (on macOS).
