Phenom/Barcelona FPU 128-bit Registers Test

Dear AMD,

I currently use an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core Processor 5600+ based PC under Red Hat Linux Fedora 7 and
do Math., et caetera, as a hobby.
Will a Phenom/Barcelona FPU give me ~ 34 - NOT 19 - digits of floating-point precision for "long double"
C/C++ variables, please?
Could you run a simple test using GCC for me which I could supply, please?!
