You know, this thread made me check my main PC (Zen 3) for MMX support, and it's indeed still there! Along with MMX+, whatever the heck that is. My work laptop (11th gen Intel) also supports it.
I could've sworn I read that one of the two big CPU makers had axed MMX support because of how irrelevant it was, even back then. That would've been what, 10+ years ago? Not that it matters, because obviously I was dreaming. It wouldn't surprise me, though, if MMX was rolled into SSE when x64 took over. Maybe that's what I'm misremembering.
Anyway. You now have my permission to return to the original topic of MMX on the actual MMX. Pentium. 😜
Edit: It was 3DNow! AMD dropped it back in 2010. https://bit-tech.net/news/tech/cpus/amd-retires-3dnow/1/
