Intel AVX extends out to 512 bits




Intel has given details about the next generation AVX instructions. Thus, future generations of processors more effectively to deal with vector calculations. Especially these servers would have to benefit.

The new instruction set is fully Intel Advanced Vector Extensions 512 called, simply AVX-512, as reported in Intel software blog. The new instruction follows the 512bit wide SIMD set up in Knights Corners was introduced. In the successor to the Xeon Phi coprocessor, codenamed Knights Landing, the AVX-512 instruction debut. Future generations Xeon processors will be equipped. With AVX-512

The instruction set supports eight or sixteen single precision double precision floating point numbers in the 512bit-vectors. It also fit eight 64bit integers or sixteen 32-bit integers: AVX-512 thus doubling the amount of data compared to the AVX2 instruction. AVX-512 is compatible with previous AVX instruction sets. Intel did not disclose whether the AVX-512 instructions also consumers processors used in future generations. These processors, codenamed Broadwell and later Skylake, would get AVX 3.2: whether the new 512bit instruction is, remains to be seen.
