Gain the fundamentals of x86 64-bit assembly language programming and focus on
the updated aspects of the x86 instruction set that are most relevant to application
software development. This book covers topics including x86 64-bit programming and
Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) programming.
The focus in this second edition is exclusively on 64-bit base programming architecture
and AVX programming. Modern X86 Assembly Language Programming’s structure and
sample code are designed to help you quickly understand x86 assembly language
programming and the computational capabilities of the x86 platform. After readingand using this book, you’ll be able to code performance-enhancing functions and
algorithms using x86 64-bit assembly language and the AVX, AVX2 and AVX-512
instruction set extensions.
What You Will Learn
Who This Book Is For
Software developers who want to learn how to write code using x86 64-bit assembly language. It’s also ideal for software developers who already have a basic understanding of x86 32-bit or 64-bit assembly language programming and are interested in learning how to exploit the SIMD capabilities of AVX, AVX2 and AVX-512.
