MMX Technology Programming

This chapter focuses on MMX programming. It begins by exploring MMX programming fundamentals. This is followed by an examination of some advanced MMX programming techniques that can accelerate the processing of integer arrays. All of the ensuing discussions and sample programs assume that you’re familiar with the material in Chapter 5.

It was mentioned in Chapter 5 that MMX technology defines a basis for subsequent x86 SIMD extensions, including x86-SSE and x86-AVX. This means that you are strongly encouraged to peruse this chapter in order to acquire a thorough understanding of MMX programming and its associated ...
