Description

Converts two or four packed single-precision floating-point values in the source operand (second operand) to two or four packed double-precision floating-point values in the destination operand (first operand).

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

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

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

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

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