X86-64 SIMD Architecture

  • Daniel Kusswurm


The previous two chapters focused on the fundamentals of the x86-64 platform and its core architecture. In this chapter, exploration of the x86-64 platform continues with an examination of its SIMD architecture, which includes the computational resources of x86-SSE and x86-AVX. In the first section, you learn about the 64-bit x86-SSE execution environment, including its register set, supported data types, and instruction sets. The second section contains a similarly-ordered discussion that focuses on the 64-bit x86-AVX execution environment.
