Unformatted text preview: tional instruction that uses the mask result in the destination operand as an input operand will not generate a fault, since a mask of all 0s corresponds to a floating-point value of +0.0 and a mask of all 1s corresponds to a QNaN. Some of the comparisons listed in Table 3-7 can be achieved only through software emulation. For these comparisons the program must swap the operands (copying registers when necessary to protect the data that will now be in the destination operand), and then perform the compare using a different predicate. The predicate to be used for these emulations is listed in Table 3-7 under the heading Emulation. Compilers and assemblers may implement the following two-operand pseudo-ops in addition to the three-operand CMPSS instruction. See Table 3-11. 3-144 Vol. 2 INSTRUCTION SET REFERENCE, A-M Table 3-11. Pseudo-Ops and CMPSS Pseudo-Op CMPEQSS xmm1, xmm2 CMPLTSS xmm1, xmm2 CMPLESS xmm1, xmm2 CMPUNORDSS xmm1, xmm2 CMPNEQSS xmm1, xmm2 CMPNLTSS xmm1, xmm2 CMPNLESS xmm1, xmm2 CMPORDSS xmm1, xmm2 CMPSS Implementation CMPSS xmm1, xmm2, 0 CMPSS xmm1, xmm2, 1 CMPSS xmm1, xmm2, 2 CMPSS xmm1, xmm2, 3 CMPSS xmm1, xmm2, 4 CMPSS xmm1, xmm2, 5 CMPSS xmm1, xmm2, 6 CMPSS xmm1, xmm2, 7 The greater-than relations not implemented in the processor require more than one instruction to emulate in software and therefore should not be implemented as pseudo-ops. (For these, the programmer should reverse the operands of the corresponding less than relations and use move instructions to ensure that the mask is moved to the correct destination register and that the source operand is left intact.) In 64-bit mode, use of the REX.R prefix permits this instruction to access additional registers (XMM8-XMM15).
