Has anyone made good use of it? It seems to be a blessing since it sets the EFLAGS directly from floating point comparisms but is there anything I should beware of before using it?

Well, it should be noted that this instruction doesn't effect the sign flag.
I had a nasty error using the wrong branch - took forever to find!

Adding a little bit more to what bitRAKE said:

You may treat fcomi as fcom/fnswst/lahf in one step. So, you will get PF/ZF/CF only, just as you get when you do it in the old way. One big advantage of fcomi is that it does not trash ax, let alone the speed improvement.
