Ooops - wrong instruction description in volume 2 of the SDM

Looking at the new version of Volume 2 of the SDM (document 325383-055), I just noticed that the "Description" field for the VINSERTF128 instruction (page 4-514) is incorrect.  It appears to have been copied (with some modification) from the description of the VINSERTPS instruction (which is described with the INSERTPS instruction on page 3-422), but it should be almost identical to the description of the VINSERTI128 instruction on page 4-515.

bus error for custom collection

Hi Intel experts,


I'm using the custom collection to get cache hits and misses for the L1, L2, and L3 caches on an image processing program. When I run the command on 50 frames, the collection works, but as soon as I increase it up to 100 frames it throws out "bus error (core dumped)" after amplxe generates 8% of the report. This is the command I'm using:


Media SDK (for Windows)

I`ve downloaded latest version of Samples for Intel Media Client (version but was unable to build it with Media SDK - there`s a change in mfxInitParam structure which this version of MSDK doesn`t know. As I understand there is a new version of MSDK available, but how can I get it? I tried to reinstall Media SDK with INDE installer but received the same version...

Compiler error assertion failed at: "shared/cfe/edgcpfe/lower_init.c" on debian jessie


I installed parallel_studio_xe_2015_update3 on my debian jessie on linux, and when i'm trying to compile the code I'm working on with icpc, there is this strange error :

/usr/include/c++/4.9/sstream(564): internal error: assertion failed at: "shared/cfe/edgcpfe/lower_init.c", line 5243


with no links to my code or anything else.

What did I missed?

kernel version 3.16.0-4-amd64


g++ 4.9.2 also installed (no issues with this compiler)

sample_decode IDirect3DSurface9::UnlockRect


I`ve faced with a strange behavior of sample_decode example in MODE_FILE_DUMP with -d3d option. If I launch this sample project under IDE (VS 2013, Debug or Release configuration, Windows 8.1) - I receive an access violation exception in D3DFrameAllocator::UnlockFrame function, on pSurface->UnlockRect line. If I launch builded sample from the command line - everything works normal.

Does anybody have any idea why this could happen?

MPX instructions not in the Appendix A opcode map


In the last release 55  of  Intel® 64 and IA-32 Architectures Software Developer’s Manual in Vol 2C A-11, we can't see MPX instructions. In fact, I usually use opcode maps to find instructions encoding. I am not sure this forum can be used to report typos like these. Just tell me if I am not in the right place.
