Opcode/Instruction Op/En 64/32-bit Mode CPUID Feature Flag Description
VEX.256.66.0F3A.W0 19 /r ib VEXTRACTF128 xmm1/m128, ymm2, imm8 MR V/V AVX Extract 128 bits of packed floating-point values from ymm2 and store results in xmm1/mem.

Description

Extracts 128-bits of packed floating-point values from the source operand (second operand) at an 128-bit offset from imm8[0] into the destination operand (first operand). The destination may be either an XMM register or an 128-bit memory location.

VEX.vvvv is reserved and must be 1111b otherwise instructions will #UD.

The high 7 bits of the immediate are ignored.

If VEXTRACTF128 is encoded with VEX.L= 0, an attempt to execute the instruction encoded with VEX.L= 0 will cause an #UD exception.

Operation
