X86-SSE programming – Scalar Floating-Point

In the previous chapter, you explored the computational resources of x86-SSE, including its data types and instruction set. In this chapter, you learn how to perform scalar floating-point arithmetic using the x86-SSE instruction set. The content of this chapter is divided into two sections. The first section illustrates basic x86-SSE scalar floating-point operations, including simple arithmetic, compares, and type conversions. The second section contains a couple of sample programs that demonstrate advanced x86-SSE scalar floating-point techniques.

All of the sample programs in this chapter ...
