Developer Guide and Reference



Loads and broadcasts packed single-precision floating point values. The corresponding Intel® AVX instruction is


extern __m256 _mm256_broadcast_ps(__m128 const *a);
pointer to a memory location that can hold constant 128-bit float32 values
Loads 128-bit float32 values from the specified address pointed to by
, and broadcasts it to all elements in the destination 256-bit vector.
Result of the load and broadcast operation.

Product and Performance Information


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. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
