Advanced Vector Extensions 512 (AVX512) is collective name for a number of 512bit SIMD x86 instruction set extensions. The extensions were formally introduced by Intel in July 2013 with first generalpurpose microprocessors implementing the extensions introduced in July 2017.
Contents
Overview[edit]
AVX512 is a set of 512bit SIMD extensions that allow programs to pack sixteen singleprecision eight doubleprecision floatingpoint numbers, or eight 64bit or sixteen 32bit integers within 512bit vectors. The extension provides double the computation capabilities of that of AVX/AV2.
 AVX512F  AVX512 Foundation
 Base of the 512bit SIMD instruction extensions which is a comprehensive list of features for most HPC and enterprise applications. AVX512 Foundation is the natural extensions to AVX/AVX2 which is extended using the EVEX prefix which builds on the existing VEX prefix. Any processor that implements any portion of the AVX512 extensions MUST implement AVX512F.

Registers[edit]
AVX512 defines 32 512bit vector registers ZMM0 ... ZMM31. They are shared by integer and floating point vector instructions and can contain 64 bytes, or 32 16bit words, or 16 doublewords, or 8 quadwords, or 32 half precision, 16 single precision, 16 BFloat16, or 8 double precision IEEE 754 floating point values. If the integer values are interpreted as signed or unsigned depends on the instruction. As x86 is a littleendian architecture elements are numbered from zero beginning at the least significant byte of the register, and vectors are stored in memory LSB to MSB regardless of vector size and element type. Some instructions group elements in lanes. A pair of single precision values in the second 64bit lane for instance refers to bits 64 ... 95 and 96 ... 127 of the register, again counting from the least significant bit.
The earlier AVX extension, which supports only 128 and 256bit vectors, similarly defines 16 256bit vector registers YMM0 ... YMM15. These are aliased to the lower half of the registers ZMM0 ... ZMM15. The still earlier SSE extension defines 16 128bit vector registers XMM0 ... XMM15. These are aliased to the lowest quarter of the registers ZMM0 ... ZMM15. That means AVX512 instructions can access the results of AVX and SSE instructions and to some degree vice versa. MMX instructions, the oldest vector instructions on x86 processors, use different registers. The full set of registers is only available in x8664 mode. In other modes SSE, AVX, and AVX512 instructions can only access the first eight registers.
AVX512 instructions generally operate on 512bit vectors. Often variants operating on 128 and 256bit vectors are also available, and sometimes only a 128bit variant. Shorter vectors are stored towards the LSB of the vector registers. Accordingly in assembler code the vector size is implied by register names XMM, YMM, and ZMM. AVX512 instructions can of course access 32 of all these registers.
Use of 128 and 256bit vectors can be beneficial to reduce memory traffic and achieve performance gains on implementations which complete 512bit instructions as two or even four internal operations. This also explains why many horizontal operations are confined to 128bit lanes. Motivations of such implementations can be a reduction of execution resources due to die size or complexity constraints, or performance optimizations where execution resources are dynamically disabled if power or thermal limits are reached instead of downclocking the CPU core which also affects uncritical instructions. If AVX512 features are not needed shorter equivalent AVX instructions may also improve instruction cache utilization.
Write masking[edit]
Most AVX512 instructions support write masking. That means they can write individual elements in the destination vector unconditionally, leave them unchanged, or zero them if the corresponding bit in a mask register supplied as an additional source operand is zero. The masking mode is encoded in the instruction opcode. AVX512 defines 8 64bit mask registers K0 ... K7. Masks can vary in width from 1 to 64 bits depending on the instruction (e.g. some operating on a single vector element) and the number of elements in the vector. They are likewise stored towards the LSB of the mask registers.
One application of write masking are predicated instructions. In vectorized code conditional operations on individual elements are not possible. A solution is to form predicates by comparing elements and execute the conditional operations regardless of outcome, but skip writes for results where the predicate is negative. This was already possible with MMX compare and bitwise logical instructions. Write masking improves the code density by blending results as a side effect. Another application are operations on arrays which do not match the vector sizes supported by AVX512 or which are inconveniently aligned.
Memory fault suppression[edit]
AVX512 supports memory fault suppression. A memory fault occurs for instance if a vector loaded from memory crosses a page boundary and one of the pages is unreadable because no physical memory was allocated to that virtual address. Programmers and compilers can avoid this by aligning vectors. A vectorized function served with pointers as parameters has to prepare code handling these edge cases at runtime. With memory fault suppression it can just mask out bytes it was not supposed to load from or store in memory and no exceptions will be generated for those bytes.
Integer instructions[edit]
Common aspects:
 Parallel operations are performed on the corresponding elements of the destination and source operands.
 A "word" is 16 bits wide, a "doubleword" 32 bits, a "quadword" 64 bits.
 Signed saturation: min(max(2^{W1}, x), 2^{W1}  1),
 Unsigned saturation: min(max(0, x), 2^{W}  1), where W is the destination data type width in bits.
 Except as noted the destination operand and the first of two source operands is a vector register.
 If the destination is a vector register and the vector size is less than 512 bits AVX and AVX512 instructions zero the unused higher bits to avoid a dependency on earlier instructions writing those bits. If the destination is a mask register unused higher mask bits due to the vector and element size are cleared.
 Except as noted the second or only source operand can be
 a vector register,
 a vector in memory,
 or a single element in memory broadcast to all elements in the vector. The broadcast option is limited to AVX512 instructions operating on doublewords or quadwords.
 Some instructions use an immediate value as an additional operand, a byte which is part of the opcode.
The table below lists all AVX512 instructions operating on integer values. The columns on the right show the x86 extension which introduced the instruction, broken down by instruction encoding and supported vector size in bits. For brevity mnemonics are abbreviated: "(V)PMULLW" means PMULLW (MMX/SSE variant) and VPMULLW (AVX/AVX512). "P(MIN/MAX)(SD/UD)" means PMINSD, PMINUD, PMAXSD, and PMAXUD, instructions computing the minimum or maximum of signed or unsigned doublewords.

            4VNNIW 
Dot product of signed 16bit words, accumulated in doublewords, four iterations. These instructions use two 512bit vector operands. The first one is a vector register, the second one is obtained by reading a 128bit vector from memory and broadcasting it to the four 128bit lanes of a 512bit vector. The instructions multiply the 32 corresponding signed words in the source operands, then add the signed 32bit products from the even lanes, odd lanes, and the 16 signed doublewords in the 512bit destination vector register and store the sums in the destination. Finally the instructions increment the number of the source register by one modulo four, and repeat these operations three more times, reading four vector registers total in a 4aligned block, e.g. ZMM12 ... ZMM15. Exceptions can occur in each iteration. Write masking is supported.
dest = min(max(2^{31}, even + odd + dest), 2^{31}  1) Its VNNI equivalent is

Parallel compare with predicate equal or greaterthan of the signed bytes, words, doublewords, or quadwords in the first and second source operand. The MMX, SSE, and AVX versions store the result, 1 = true or 0 = false, in the corresponding elements of the destination, a vector register. These can be used as masks in bitwise logical operations to emulate predicated vector instructions. The AVX512 versions set the corresponding bits in the destination mask register to 1 = true or 0 = false.

These instructions perform a parallel bitwise 'and' (TESTM) or 'not and' (TESTNM), that is (not source1) and source2, on the bytes, words, doublewords, or quadwords of the source operands, then set the bits in the destination mask register, copying the most significant bit of the corresponding results.  
(V)P(AND/ANDN/OR/XOR)(/D/Q)

MMX  SSE2  AVX  AVX2  F+VL  F+VL  F 
Parallel bitwise logical operations. The ANDN operation is (not source1) and source2. The AVX512 versions operate on doublewords or quadwords, the distinction is necessary because these instructions support write masking which observes the number of elements in the vector.
 
VPTERNLOG(D/Q)

        F+VL  F+VL  F 
Parallel bitwise ternary logical operations on doublewords or quadwords. These instructions concatenate the corresponding bits of the destination, first, and second source operand into a 3bit index which selects a bit from an 8bit lookup table provided by an immediate byte, and store it in the corresponding bit of the destination. In other words they can perform any bitwise boolean operation with up to three inputs.

Parallel bitwise left shift (PSLL) or logical (unsigned) right shift (PSRL) or arithmetic (signed) right shift (PSRA) of the words, doublewords, or quadwords in the first or only source operand. The amount can be a constant provided by an immediate byte, or a single value provided by a second source operand, specifically the lowest quadword of a vector register or a 128bit vector in memory. If the shift amount is greater than or equal to the element size in bits the destination element is zeroed (PSLL, PSRL) or set to 1 or 0 (PSRA). Broadcasting is supported by the constant amount AVX512 instruction variants operating on doublewords or quadwords.

VPSH(L/R)D(W/D/Q)

        VBMI2+VL  VBMI2+VL  VBMI2 
Parallel bitwise funnel shift left or right by a constant amount. The instructions concatenate each word, doubleword, or quadword of the first and second source operand, perform a bitwise logical left or right shift by a constant amount modulo element width in bits taken from an immediate byte, and store the upper (L) or lower (R) half of the result in the corresponding elements of the destination vector.  
VPSH(L/R)DV(W/D/Q)

        VBMI2+VL  VBMI2+VL  VBMI2

The instructions concatenate each word, doubleword, or quadword of the destination and first source operand, perform a bitwise logical left or right shift by a variable amount modulo element width in bits taken from the corresponding element of the second source operand, and store the upper (L) or lower (R) half of the result in the corresponding elements of the destination vector.>  
VPMULTISHIFTQB

        VBMI+VL  VBMI+VL  VBMI 
Copies 8 consecutive bits from the second source operand into each byte of the destination vector using bit indices. For each destination byte the instruction obtains an index from the corresponding byte of the first source operand. The operation is confined to 64bit quadwords so the indices can only address bits in the same 64bit lane as the index and destination byte. The instruction increments the index for each bit modulo 64. In other words the operation for each destination byte is: dest.byte[i] = bitwise_rotate_right(source2.quadword[i / 8], source1.byte[i] and 63) and 255 The destination and first source operand is a vector register. The second source operand can be a vector register, a vector in memory, or one quadword broadcast to all 64bit lanes of the vector. Write masking is supported with quadword granularity.  
(V)PS(LL/RL)DQ

  SSE2  AVX  AVX2  BW+VL  BW+VL  BW 
Parallel bytewise shift left or right of quadwords by a constant amount, shifting in zero bytes. The amount is taken from an immediate byte. If greater than 15 the instructions zero the destination element. Broadcasting and write masking is not supported.

SSSE3  SSSE3  AVX  AVX2  BW+VL  BW+VL  BW 
Parallel bytewise funnel shift right by a constant amount, shifting in zero bytes. The instruction concatenates the data in corresponding 128bit lanes of the first and second source operand, shifts the 256bit intermediate values right by a constant amount times 8 and stores the lower half of the results in the corresponding 128bit lanes of the destination. The amount is taken from an immediate byte. Broadcasting is not supported. Write masking is supported with byte granularity.  
VALIGN(D/Q)

        F+VL  F+VL  F 
Elementwise funnel shift right by a constant amount, shifting in zeroed doublewords or quadwords.

  SSE4_1  AVX    DQ     
These instructions extract a byte, word, doubleword, or quadword using a constant index to select an element from the lowest 128bit lane of a source vector register and store it in a general purpose register or in memory. A memory destination is not supported by the MMX version of VPEXTRW and by the SSE version introduced by the SSE2 extension. The index is provided by an immediate byte.

      AVX2       
These instructions insert four (I32X4) or eight (I32X8) doublewords, or two (I64X2) or four (I64X4) quadwords, or one block of 128 bits ($128), in a lane of that width (e.g. 128 bits for I32X4) of the destination vector selected by a constant index provided by an immediate byte. They load this data from memory, or the lowest lane of a vector register specified by the second source operand, and data for the remaining lanes of the destination vector from the corresponding lanes of the first source operand, a vector register. Broadcasting is not supported.  
(V)PSHUFB

SSSE3  SSSE3  AVX  AVX2  BW+VL  BW+VL  BW 
Shuffles the bytes of the first source operand using variable indices. For each byte of the destination vector the instruction obtains a source index modulo 16 from the corresponding byte of the second source operand. If the most significant bit of the index byte is set the instruction zeros the destination byte instead. The indices can only address a source byte in the same 128bit lane as the destination byte.  
(V)PSHUF(L/H)W

  SSE2  AVX  AVX2  BW+VL  BW+VL  BW 
These instructions shuffle the words of the source operand using constant indices. For each element of the destination vector, a 2bit index selects an element in the same 64bit lane of the source operand. For each 64bit lane the same four indices are taken from an immediate byte. The PSHUFLW instruction writes only the even 64bit lanes of the destination vector and leaves the remaining lanes unchanged, PSHUFHW writes the odd lanes.
 
(V)PSHUFD

  SSE2  AVX  AVX2  F+VL  F+VL  F 
Shuffles the doublewords of the source operand using constant indices. For each element of the destination vector, a 2bit index selects an element in the same 128bit lane of the source operand. For each 128bit lane the same four indices are taken from an immediate byte.  
VSHUFI32X4

        F+VL  F  
VSHUFI64X2

        F+VL  F  
Shuffles a 128bit wide group of four doublewords or two quadwords of the source operands using constant indices. For each 128bit destination lane an index selects one 128bit lane of the source operands. The indices for even destination lanes can only address lanes in the first source operand, those for odd destination lanes only lanes in the second source operand. Instruction variants operating on 256bit vectors use two 1bit indices, those operating on 512bit vectors four 2bit indices, always taken from an immediate byte.  
VPSHUFBITQMB

        BITALG+VL  BITALG+VL  BITALG 
Shuffles the bits in the first source operand, a vector register, using bit indices. For each bit of the 16/32/64bit mask in a destination mask register, the instruction obtains a source index modulo 64 from the corresponding byte in a second source operand, a 128/256/512bit vector in a vector register or in memory. The operation is confined to quadwords so the indices can only select a bit from the same 64bit lane where the index byte resides. For instance bytes 8 ... 15 can address bits 64 ... 127. The instruction supports write masking which means it optionally performs a bitwise 'and' on the destination using a second mask register.  
VPERMB

        VBMI+VL  VBMI+VL  VBMI 
VPERM(W/D)

        F+VL  F+VL  F 
Permutes the bytes, words, or doublewords of the second source operand using element indices. For each element of the destination vector the instruction obtains a source index, modulo vector size in elements, from the corresponding element of the first source operand.  
VPERMQ

      AVX2    F+VL  F 
Permutes the quadwords of a source operand within a 256bit lane using constant or variable source element indices. For each destination element the constant index instruction variant obtains a 2bit index from an immediate byte, and uses the same four indices in each 256bit lane. The destination operand is a vector register. The source operand can be a vector register, a vector in memory, or one quadword in memory broadcast to all elements of the vector.
The variable index variant permutes the elements of a second source operand. For each destination element it obtains a 2bit source index from the corresponding quadword of the first source operand. The destination and first source operand is a vector register. The second source operand can be a vector register, a vector in memory, or one quadword in memory broadcast to all elements of the vector.

VPERM(I/T)2(D/Q)

        F+VL  F+VL  F 
The "I" instruction variant concatenates the second and first source operand and permutes their elements using element indices. For each element of the destination vector it obtains a source index, modulo twice the vector size in elements, from the byte, word, doubleword, or quadword in this lane and overwrites it. The "T" variant concatenates the second source and destination operand, and obtains the source indices from the first source operand. In other words the instructions perform the same operation, one overwriting the indices, the other one half of the data table. The destination and first source operand is a vector register. The second source operand can be a vector register, a vector in memory, or a single value broadcast to all elements of the vector if the element is 32 or 64 bits wide.  
VPCOMPRESS(B/W)

        VBMI2+VL  VBMI2+VL  VBMI2 
VPCOMPRESS(D/Q)

        F+VL  F+VL  F 
These instructions copy bytes, words, doublewords, or quadwords from a vector register to memory or another vector register. They copy each element in the source vector if the corresponding bit in a mask register is set, and only then increment the memory address or destination register element number for the next store. Remaining elements if the destination is a register are left unchanged or zeroed depending on the instruction variant.  
VPEXPAND(B/W)

        VBMI2+VL  VBMI2+VL  VBMI2 
VPEXPAND(D/Q)

        F+VL  F+VL  F 
These instructions copy bytes, words, doublewords, or quadwords from memory or a vector register to another vector register. They load each element of the destination register, if the corresponding bit in a mask register is set, from the source and only then increment the memory address or source register element number for the next load. Destination elements where the mask bit is cleared are left unchanged or zeroed depending on the instruction variant.  
VPBLENDM(B/W)

        BW+VL  BW+VL  BW 
VPBLENDM(D/Q)

        F+VL  F+VL  F 
Parallel blend of the bytes, words, doublewords, or quadwords in the source operands. For each element in the destination vector the corresponding bit in a mask register selects the element in the first source operand (0) or second source operand (1). If no mask operand is provided the default is all ones. "Zeromasking" variants of the instructions zero the destination elements where the mask bit is 0. In other words these instructions are equivalent to copying the first source operand to the destination, then the second source operand with regular write masking.

Floating point instructions[edit]
Common aspects:
 Parallel operations are performed on the corresponding elements of the destination and source operands.
 "Packed" instructions with mnemonics ending in PH/PS/PD write all elements of the destination vector. "Scalar" instructions ending in SH/SS/SD write only the lowest element and leave the higher elements unchanged.
 Except as noted the destination operand and the first of two source operands is a vector register.
 If the destination is a vector register and the vector size is less than 512 bits AVX and AVX512 instructions zero the unused higher bits to avoid a dependency on earlier instructions writing those bits.
 Except as noted the second or only source operand can be
 a vector register,
 a vector in memory for "packed" instructions,
 a single element in memory for "scalar" instructions,
 or a single element in memory broadcast to all elements in the vector for "packed" AVX512 instructions.
 Some instructions use an immediate value as an additional operand, a byte which is part of the opcode.
Some floating point instructions which merely copy data or perform bitwise logical operations duplicate the functionality of integer instructions. AVX512 implementations may actually execute vector integer and floating point instructions in separate execution units. Mixing those instructions is not advisable because results will be transferred automatically but this may incur a delay.
The table below lists all AVX512 instructions operating on floating point values. The columns on the right show the x86 extension which introduced the instruction, broken down by instruction encoding and supported vector size in bits. For brevity "SSE/SSE2" means the single precision variant of the instruction was introduced by the SSE, the double precision variant by the SSE2 extension. Similarly "F/FP16" means the single and double precision variant was introduced by the AVX512F (Foundation) extension, the half precision variant by the AVX512_FP16 extension.

      DQ      
These instructions perform a parallel minimum or maximum operation on single or double precision values, either on their original or absolute values. They optionally change the sign of all results to positive or negative, or copy the sign of the corresponding element in the first source operand. The operation is selected by an immediate byte. A saturation operation like min(max(limit, value), +limit) for instance can be expressed as minimum of absolute values with sign copying.

Parallel fused multiplyadd of half, single, or double precision values. These instructions require three source operands, the first source operand is also the destination operand. The numbers in the mnemonic specify the operand order, e.g. 132 means src1 = src1 * src3 + src2. The operations are:
 
VF(/C)MADDC(PH/SH) ,VF(/C)MULC(PH/SH)

      FP16+VL  FP16+VL  FP16  
Parallel complex multiplication of half precision pairs. The instructions multiply corresponding pairs of half precision values in the first and second source operand:
The  
V4F(/N)MADD(PS/SS)

          4FMAPS  
Parallel fused multiplyaccumulate of single precision values, four iterations. In each iteration the instructions source 16 multiplicands from a 512bit vector register, and one multiplier from memory which is broadcast to all 16 elements of a second vector. They add the 16 products and the 16 values in the corresponding elements of the 512bit destination register, round the sums as desired, and store them in the destination. Finally the instructions increment the number of the source register by one modulo four, and the memory address by four bytes. Exceptions can occur in each iteration. Write masking is supported. In total these instructions perform 64 multiplyaccumulate operations, reading 64 single precision multiplicands from four source registers in a 4aligned block, e.g. ZMM12 ... ZMM15, four single precision multipliers consecutive in memory, and accumulate 16 single precision results four times, also rounding four times.
The "packed" variants (PS) perform the operations above, the "scalar" variants (SS) yield only a single result in the lowest element of the 128bit destination vector, leaving the three higher elements unchanged. As usual if the vector size is less than 512 bits the instructions zero the unused higher bits in the destination register to avoid a dependency on earlier instructions writing those bits. In total the "scalar" instructions sequentially perform four multiplyaccumulate operations, read a single precision multiplicand from four source registers, four single precision multipliers from memory, and accumulate one single precision result four times in the destination register, also rounding four times.

      BF16+VL  BF16+VL  BF16  
Dot product of BFloat16 values, accumulated in single precision elements. The instruction multiplies the corresponding BF16 values of the source operands, converted to single precision, then adds the products from the even lanes, odd lanes, and the single precision values in the destination operand and stores the sums in the destination.

      FP16      
Parallel compare operation of the half, single, or double precision values in the first and second source operand. One of 32 operations (CMPEQ  equal, CMPLT  less than, CMPEQ_UO  equal unordered, ...) is selected by an immediate byte. The results, 1 = true or 0 = false, are stored in the destination.
For AVX512 versions of the instructions the destination is a mask register with bits corresponding to the source elements. The "scalar" instructions (SH/SS/SD) set only the lowest bit. Unused bits due to the vector and element size are zeroed. The instructions support write masking which performs a bitwise 'and' on the destination using a second mask register. For SSE/AVX versions the negated results (1 or 0) are stored in a vector of doublewords (PS/SS) or quadwords (PD/SD) corresponding to the source elements. These can be used as masks in bitwise logical operations to emulate predicated vector instructions.

Compares the half, single, or double precision values in the lowest element of the first and second source operand and stores the result in the ZF (equal), CF (less than), and PF (unordered) for branch instructions. UCOMI instructions perform an unordered compare and only generate an exception if a source operand is a SNaN, COMI instructions also for QNaNs. Broadcasting and write masking is not supported.

These instructions test if the half, single, or double precision values in the source operand belong to certain classes and set the bit corresponding to each element in the destination mask register to 1 = true or 0 = false. The "packed" instructions (PH/PS/PD) operate on all elements, the "scalar" instructions (SH/SS/SD) only on the lowest element and set a single mask bit. Unused higher bits of the 64bit mask register are cleared. The instructions support write masking which means they optionally perform a bitwise 'and' on the destination using a second mask register. The class is selected by an immediate byte and can be: QNaN, +0, 0, +∞, ∞, denormal, negative, SNaN, or any combination.  
(V)(AND/ANDN/OR/XOR)(PS/PD)

Parallel bitwise logical operations on single or double precision values. There are no "scalar" variants operating on a single element. The ANDN operation is (not source1) and source2. The precision distinction is necessary because all these instructions support write masking which observes the number of elements in the vector.

Parallel conversion with desired rounding. Supported data types are
The destination operand is generally a vector register. The "packed" instructions (PH/PS/PD source or destination) write all elements of the destination vector. If the source and destination data types differ in size, instructions with a 16 bit source or 64 bit destination type leave some higher source elements unconverted. Those with a 16 bit destination or 64 bit source type process all source elements and set excess elements in the destination vector to zero. The "scalar" instructions (SH/SS/SD source or destination) write only the lowest element and leave the higher elements unchanged. Instructions with SI/USI destination store the result in a 32 or 64bit general purpose register instead. All conversion instructions with a vector destination except The source operand can be a vector register, or for "packed" instructions a vector in memory, or one value in memory broadcast to all elements of the source vector, or for "scalar" instructions with SI/USI source a 32 or 64bit general purpose register. The broadcast option is not available for  
VCVT(NE/NE2)PS2BF16

      BF16+VL  BF16+VL  BF16  
Parallel conversion with desired rounding of single precision to BFloat16 values. The VCVTNEPS2BF16 instruction uses one source operand, writes only to the lower half of the destination vector and zeros the remaining elements. The VCVTNE2PS2BF16 instruction stores converted elements from the first source operand in the upper half, the second source operand in the lower half of the destination vector.
 
(V)MOV(A/U)(PS/PD)

SSE/SSE2  AVX  AVX  F+VL  F+VL  F  
Copies a vector of single or double precision values between vector registers or from a vector register to memory or vice versa. The precision distinction is necessary because these instructions support write masking which observes the number of elements in the vector. For the MOVA ("move aligned") variants the memory address must be a multiple of the vector size in bytes or an exception is generated.  
(V)MOVNT(PS/PD)

SSE/SSE2  AVX  AVX  F+VL  F+VL  F  
Stores a vector in memory with nontemporal hint i.e. it is not beneficial to perform a writeallocate and/or insert the data in the cache hierarchy. The source operand is a vector register. Write masking is not supported.  
(V)MOV(SS/SD)

SSE/SSE2  AVX    F      
Copies one single or double precision value between vector registers or from a vector register to memory or vice versa. The instructions read and write the lowest element in a vector. They zero higher elements of the destination vector if the source is memory and leave them unchanged otherwise. Broadcasting is not supported, but write masking is.  
VMOVSH

      FP16      
Parallel copy of half precision values between vector registers, or from a vector register to memory or vice versa. The regreg variant copies the lowest element from a second source operand, the higher elements from the first source operand. The memory load variant writes the lowest element in the destination vector and leaves the higher elements unchanged. The memory store variant stores the lowest element of the source operand in memory.

(V)MOVS(L/H)DUP

SSE3  AVX  AVX  F+VL  F+VL  F  
Copies the single precision values in the even (MOVSL) or odd lanes (MOVSH) of the source operand to the even and odd lanes of the destination operand. Broadcasting is not supported.  
(V)UNPCK(L/H)(PS/PD)

SSE/SSE2  AVX  AVX  F+VL  F+VL  F  
These instructions interleave the single or double precision value values of the first and second source operand. In order to fit the data into the destination vector PUNPCKL reads only the elements in the even 64bit lanes, UNPCKH only the odd 64bit lanes of the source operands.
 
(V)MOV(L/H/HL/LH)(PS/PD)

SSE/SSE2  AVX    F      
These instructions copy a 64bit pair of single precision values (PS) or one 64bit double precision value (PD). If the source operand is a vector register the MOVL and MOVLH instructions copy the lower half, MOVH and MOVHL the upper half of the 128bit source vector. If the destination operand is a vector register they copy the data to both halves. For MOVLH and MOVHL both operands are vector registers. For MOVL and MOVH the source or destination is memory. Broadcasting and write masking is not supported.
 
(V)EXTRACTPS

SSE4_1  AVX    F      
Extracts a single precision value using a constant index to select an element of the source operand and stores it in a general purpose register or in memory. If the destination is a 64bit register the instruction zeros the upper half.

VEXTRACTF128

    AVX        
These instructions extract four (F32X4) or eight (F32X8) single precision values, or two (F64X2) or four (F64X4) double precision values, or one block of 128 bits (F128), from a lane of that width (e.g. 128 bits for F32X4) of the source operand selected by a constant index and store the data in memory, or in the lowest lane of a vector register. Higher lanes of the destination register are zeroed. The index is provided by an immediate byte. Broadcasting is not supported.  
(V)INSERTPS

SSE4_1  AVX    F      
Inserts a single precision value using two indices to select an element in the source operand and the destination operand. Additionally zeros the elements in the destination where the corresponding bit in a 4bit mask is set. The indices and the mask are constants in an immediate byte. Broadcasting and AVX512 write masking is not supported.

    AVX        
These instructions insert four (F32X4) or eight (F32X8) single precision values, or two (F64X2) or four (F64X4) double precision values, or one block of 128 bits ($128), in a lane of that width (e.g. 128 bits for F32X4) of the destination vector selected by a constant index provided by an immediate byte. They load this data from memory, or the lowest lane of a vector register specified by the second source operand, and data for the remaining lanes of the destination vector from the corresponding lanes of the first source operand, a vector register. Broadcasting is not supported.  
(V)SHUFPS

SSE  AVX  AVX  F+VL  F+VL  F  
Shuffles the single precision values of the source operands using constant indices. For each element of the destination vector, a 2bit index selects an element in the same 128bit lane of the source operands. The indices for even 64bit destination lanes can only address elements in the first source operand, those for odd lanes only elements in the second source operand. For each 128bit lane the same four indices are taken from an immediate byte.  
(V)SHUFPD

SSE2  AVX  AVX  F+VL  F+VL  F  
Shuffles the double precision values of the source operands using constant indices. For each element of the destination vector, a 1bit index selects an element in the same 128bit lane of the source operands. The indices for even 64bit destination lanes can only address elements in the first source operand, those for odd lanes only elements in the second source operand. The indices are taken from an immediate byte.  
VSHUFF32X4

        F+VL  F  
VSHUFF64X2

        F+VL  F  
Shuffles a 128bit wide group of four single precision or two double precision values of the source operands using constant indices. For each 128bit destination lane an index selects one 128bit lane of the source operands. The indices for even destination lanes can only address lanes in the first source operand, those for odd destination lanes only lanes in the second source operand. Instruction variants operating on 256bit vectors use two 1bit indices, those operating on 512bit vectors four 2bit indices, always taken from an immediate byte.  
VPERM(PS/PD)

    AVX2    F+VL  F  
Permutes the single or double precision values of the source operand within a 256bit lane using constant or variable source element indices. For each destination element the VPERMPD instruction with constant indices obtains a 2bit index from an immediate byte and uses the same four indices in each 256bit lane. VPERMPS does not support constant indices.
The variable index variants permute the elements of a second source operand. For each destination element they obtain a 3bit (PS) or 2bit (PD) source index from the corresponding doubleword or quadword of the first source operand.  
VPERM(I/T)2(PS/PD)

      F+VL  F+VL  F  
The "I" instruction variant concatenates the second and first source operand and permutes their elements using element indices. For each element of the destination vector it obtains a source index, modulo twice the vector size in elements, from the doubleword or quadword in this lane and overwrites it. The "T" variant concatenates the second source and destination operand, and obtains the source indices from the first source operand. In other words the instructions perform the same operation, one overwriting the indices, the other one half of the data table. The destination and first source operand is a vector register. The second source operand can be a vector register, a vector in memory, or a single value broadcast to all elements of the vector.  
VPERMIL(PS/PD)

  AVX  AVX  F+VL  F+VL  F  
Permutes the single or double precision values of the first source operand within a 128bit lane using constant or variable source element indices. For each destination element the VPERMILPD instruction with constant indices obtains a 1bit index from an immediate byte. The VPERMILPS instruction selects elements with a 2bit index from an immediate byte and uses the same four indices for each 128bit lane of the destination. The destination is a vector register. The source can be a vector register or a vector in memory.
For each destination element the variable index variants obtain a source index from the lowest two bits (PS) or the second lowest bit (PD) of the corresponding doubleword or quadword of a second source operand. The first source operand is a vector register. The second source operand can be a vector register, a vector in memory, or one doubleword or quadword in memory broadcast to all elements of the vector.  
VCOMPRESS(PS/PD)

      F+VL  F+VL  F  
These instructions copy single or double precision values from a vector register to memory or another vector register. They copy each element in the source vector if the corresponding bit in a mask register is set, and only then increment the memory address or destination register element number for the next store. Remaining elements if the destination is a register are left unchanged or zeroed depending on the instruction variant.  
VEXPAND(PS/PD)

      F+VL  F+VL  F  
These instructions copy single or double precision values from memory or a vector register to another vector register. They load each element of the destination register, if the corresponding bit in a mask register is set, from the source and only then increment the memory address or source register element number for the next load. Destination elements where the mask bit is cleared are left unchanged or zeroed depending on the instruction variant.  
VBLENDM(PS/PD)

      F+VL  F+VL  F  
Parallel blend of the single or double precision value in the source operands. For each element in the destination vector the corresponding bit in a mask register selects the element in the first source operand (0) or second source operand (1). If no mask operand is provided the default is all ones. "Zeromasking" variants of the instructions zero the destination elements where the mask bit is 0. In other words these instructions are equivalent to copying the first source operand to the destination, then the second source operand with regular write masking.
