AVX Programming – Packed Integers
In the previous chapter, you learned how to use the AVX instruction set to perform calculations using packed floating-point operands. In this chapter, you learn how to carry out computations using packed integer operands. Similar to the previous chapter, the first few source code examples in this chapter demonstrate basic arithmetic operations using packed integers. The remaining source code examples illustrate how to use the computational resources of AVX to perform common image processing operations, including histogram creation and thresholding.
