X86-SSE Programming – Packed Floating-Point

In this chapter, you learn how to create assembly language functions that manipulate the packed floating-point resources of x86-SSE. You begin by examining a few sample programs that demonstrate essential x86-SSE packed floating-point operations, including basic arithmetic, compares, and data type conversions. This is followed by a section that illustrates use of the x86-SSE instruction set to carry out more sophisticated mathematical techniques using packed single-precision and double-precision floating-point values.

The sample code in this chapter exercises various levels of x86-SSE. The ...
