In Chapter 6, you learned how to use the AVX instruction set to perform packed floating-point operations using the XMM register set and 128-bit wide operands. In this chapter, you learn how carry out packed floating-point operations using the YMM register set and 256-bit wide operands. The chapter begins with a simple example that demonstrates the basics of packed floating-point arithmetic and YMM register use. This is followed by three source code examples that illustrate how to perform packed calculations with floating-point arrays.
