Description

Converts four/eight packed half precision (16-bits) floating-point values in the low-order 64/128 bits of an XMM/YMM register or 64/128-bit memory location to four/eight packed single-precision floating-point values and writes the converted values into the destination XMM/YMM register.

If case of a denormal operand, the correct normal result is returned. MXCSR.DAZ is ignored and is treated as if it 0. No denormal exception is reported on MXCSR.

128-bit version: The source operand is a XMM register or 64-bit memory location. The destination operand is a XMM register. The upper bits (VLMAX-1:128) of the corresponding destination YMM register are zeroed.

256-bit version: The source operand is a XMM register or 128-bit memory location. The destination operand is a YMM register.

The diagram below illustrates how data is converted from four packed half precision (in 64 bits) to four single precision (in 128 bits) FP values. Note: VEX.vvvv is reserved (must be 1111b).
