Almost certainly if it's a recent x86-class processor. It's a set of microprocessor instructions that was introduced... sometime during the Pentium line of processors, so every Core i# has 'em, as do contemporary AMD rivals.

In computing, Streaming SIMD Extensions (SSE) is an SIMD instruction set extension to the x86 architecture, designed by Intel and introduced in 1999 in their Pentium III series processors as a reply to AMD's 3DNow! (which had debuted a year earlier). SSE contains 70 new instructions, most of which work on single precision floating point data. SIMD instructions can greatly increase performance when exactly the same operations are to be performed on multiple data objects. Typical applications are digital signal processing and graphics processing.

Stolen right off the Wiki....
