Seek help for AVX shuffle parameters

hi, guys,I write an AVX code which need a shuffle, but i can not write out how the parameter should be set, Could anyone give me some help ?the source is :U: u7, u6,u5,u4,u3,u2,u1,u0;V: v7,v6,v5,v4,v3,v2,v1,v0;N: n7,n6,n5,n4,n3,n2,n1,n0;I want to shuffle it to :v1,u4,n4,v4,u4,n0,v0,u0;u6,n2,v2,u2,n5,v5,u5,n1;n7,v7,u7,n3,v3,u3,n6,v6;

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

Your first result vector probably should be v1,u1,n4,v4,u4,n0,v0,u0;.
Please look at this linked article where a very similar problem is solved.
You might need to modify the load operations by using unpcklps.

thanks for pointing out the mistake spelling. yes, it is u1.I have write out shuffle code, but inorder to have a sequence like the artical, i have to use 9 permute, 6 unpack and the 6 shuffle. In the end , my AVX code runs just similar time with the sse one.

The AVX architecture does support sse shuffles well. In some cases where the compiler generates sse shuffles only when VECTOR ALWAYS is set (because it would be slow on original sse CPUs), the sse VECTOR ALWAYS code runs as fast on AVX capable CPU as AVX options could do. In case the shuffle performance is limited by the issue rate for memory read, the AVX CPU doubles that rate.
