It will have no effect at all on the assignments, but it will make the Gromacs core run much slower if and when you get a Gromacs assignment. The setting is intended for machines which, for one reason or another, are unable to run the assembly code. Mainly it was needed a year or so ago on some AMD machines which have an implementation bug in SSE, but since then the client code has been rewritten to avoid the failing conditions. For the most part, the flag is no longer needed, and almost never recommended.

Consider it the opposite of -forceasm
