I have been learning game development, using C++ and OpenGL, for about 4-5 months. Before that I used to program in C# and the .NET platform(about a year). So, I consider myself new to game engineering and software development as whole.
Recently I read about SIMD math. I found it interesting and started wondering if it was good to use it in my math library. But, considering that I have so much to learn and I haven't even laid the foundations of my knowledge of game development, should I explore it in depth and start using it? Or should I wait until I really start to need it?
