_mm_fmadd_sd

Multiply-adds scalar double-precision floating-point values using three float64 vectors. The corresponding FMA instruction is
VFMADD<XXX>SD
, where XXX could be 132, 213, or 231.

Syntax

extern __m128d _mm_fmadd_sd(__m128d a, __m128d b, __m128d c);
Arguments
a
float64 vector used for the operation
b
float64 vector also used for the operation
c
float64 vector also used for the operation
Description
Performs a set of scalar SIMD multiply-add computation on scalar double-precision floating-point values in the low 32-bits of three source operands,
a
,
b
, and
c
. The float64 values in two operands,
a
and
b
, are multiplied and the infinite precision intermediate result is obtained. The float64 value in the third operand,
c
, is added to the infinite precision intermediate result. The final result is rounded to the nearest float64 value.
The compiler defaults to using the
VFMADD213SD
instruction and uses the other forms
VFMADD132SD
or
VFMADD231SD
only if a low level optimization decides it is useful/necessary. For example, the compiler could change the default if it finds that another instruction form saves a register or eliminates a move.
Returns
Result of the multiply-add operation.

Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors.
