MOVSLDUP (Move Packed Single-FP Low and Duplicate)

Opcodes

Opcode/Instruction Op/En 64/32-bit Mode CPUID Feature Flag Description
F3 0F 12 /r MOVSLDUP xmm1, xmm2/m128 RM V/V SSE3 Move two single-precision floating-point values from the lower 32-bit operand of each qword in xmm2/m128 to xmm1 and duplicate each 32-bit operand to the higher 32-bits of each qword.
VEX.128.F3.0F.WIG 12 /r VMOVSLDUP xmm1, xmm2/m128 RM V/V AVX Move even index single-precision floating-point values from xmm2/mem and duplicate each element into xmm1.
VEX.256.F3.0F.WIG 12 /r VMOVSLDUP ymm1, ymm2/m256 RM V/V AVX Move even index single-precision floating-point values from ymm2/mem and duplicate each element into ymm1.

Description

The linear address corresponds to the address of the least-significant byte of the referenced memory data. When a memory address is indicated, the 16 bytes of data at memory location m128 are loaded and the single-precision elements in positions 0 and 2 are duplicated. When the register-register form of this operation is used, the same operation is performed but with data coming from the 128-bit source register.

See Figure 3-26.

In 64-bit mode, use of the REX.R prefix permits this instruction to access additional registers (XMM8-XMM15).

128-bit Legacy SSE version: Bits (VLMAX-1:128) of the corresponding YMM destination register remain unchanged.

VEX.128 encoded version: Bits (VLMAX-1:128) of the destination YMM register are zeroed.

Note: In VEX-encoded versions, VEX.vvvv is reserved and must be 1111b otherwise instructions will #UD.
