SSE) intrinsics for comparision operations are in the xmmintrin.hheader file. Each comparison intrinsic performs a comparison of aand b. For the packed form, the four SP FP values of aand bare.

The results of each intrinsic operation are placed in a register. This register is illustrated for each intrinsic with R0-R3. R0, R1, R2, and R3 each represent one of the four 32-bit pieces of the result register.That's not so great. Relative to the the benchmark linked above, we're doing better because we're using 64-bit popcnt instead of 32-bit popcnt, but the PSHUFB version is still almost twice as fast 1. One odd thing is the way cnt gets accumulated.cnt is stored in ecx.But, instead of adding the result of the popcnt to ecx, clang has decided to add ecx to the result of the popcnt.SSE Comparison SSE Conversion SSE Data Movement SSE Intrinsics SSE Introduction SSE Logical SSE Primer SSE Reciprocal SSE Shuffle SSE State Management SSE2 64-bit FP instructions SSE2 and MMX SSE2 Intrinsics.
Now, if you want to convert from NEON to SSE, there is a solution. On December 12, 2012 (if I recall correctly that was the date of the great Mayan prophecy of doom) an engineer with Intel, Victoria Zhislina, published the following excellent article and piece of source code.This single piece of source remaps the NEON intrinsics API to functional equivalents for SSE.Read More

In Power and Performance, 2015. 12.5.3 Compiler Intrinsics. Compiler intrinsics are built-in functions provided by the compiler that share a one-to-one, or many-to-one, relationship with specific instructions. This allows the specific instructions to be written using high-level programming constructs and frees the developer from worrying about calling conventions, register allocation, and.Read More
The mask is set to 0xffffffff for each element where the comparison is true and 0x0 where the comparison is false. To see detailed information about an intrinsic, click on that intrinsic name in the following table. The results of each intrinsic operation are placed in a register. This register is illustrated for each intrinsic with R or R0-R3.Read More
SSE uses the same 128-bit type for representing masks returned by floating point comparisons. Single float's byte sequence 0x00000000 in hexadecimals represents false and 0xFFFFFFFF represents true. SSE has comparison instructions for all the basic arithmetic comparisons like greater or equal than.Read More
SSE 4.2 introduces four instructions (PcmpEstrI, PcmpEstrM, PcmpIstrI, and PcmpIstrM) that can be used to speed up text processing code (including strcmp, memcmp, strstr, and strspn functions). Intel had published the description for new instruction formats, but no sample code nor high-level guidelines. This article tries to provide them.Read More
The result of the comparison is a vector of the same width and number of elements as the comparison operands with a signed integral element type. Vectors are compared element-wise producing 0 when comparison is false and -1 (constant of the appropriate type where all bits are set) otherwise. Consider the following example.Read More
String Compare Legend Each intrinsic is only available on machines which support the corresponding instruction set. This list depicts the instruction sets and the first Intel and AMD CPUs that supported them. The green numbers behind the CPUs depict the year of release. The following data types are used in the signatures of the intrinsics. Note that.Read More
The MMand XMMregisters are the SIMD registers used by the IA-32 platforms to implement MMX technology and SSE or SSE2 intrinsics. On the Itanium-based platforms, the MMX and SSE intrinsics use the 64-bit general registers and the 64- bit significand of the 80-bit floating-point register.Read More
