What Synthmark score is the diagnostic reporting?

Vishera appears to support AVX1 and FMA3, but not AVX2. We can, in that instance, take advantage of AVX1 but not FMA3 -- Visual Studio doesn't provide an option to generate FMA3 w/o AVX2.
I'm happy to release a build as you describe, but it may be a little while yet.
Will post a bit more info on the development process shortly, but in summary we're developing the next Strobe2 update in parallel with Cypher2 (which is coming along very nicely!). Takes a bit longer this way but means we can make bigger improvements.
