In the previous four chapters, you learned about the architecture and processing capabilities of AVX. These chapters explicated AVX’s register sets, data types, and instructions. They also included numerous source code examples that illustrated how to perform scalar floating-point arithmetic, packed floating-point computations, and packed integer calculations. Many of the packed floating-point and packed integer source code examples exemplified important SIMD programming strategies and techniques whose exploitation often results in faster executing code.
