While "importing" the sse code to gnubg-nn I discovered an error in the

since sse can be toggled during run time in gnubg-nn)

Since this results in bad evaluations, I am surprised it has not been
detected in gnubg.

>From the differences between the SSE code in gnubg and gnubg-nn, it looks like you mean the cases when the input is higher than 10, isn't it ?

For these cases, my understanding is that the combination of the _mm_min_ps(xin, tens.ps); at the beginning of sigmoid_positive_ps() and the 101th entry in the lookup table does what is needed.

That understanding is incorrect.
