VCVTSH2SS—Convert Low FP16 Value to FP32 Value

Opcode/Instruction Op/En 64/32 bit Mode Support CPUID Feature Flag Description
EVEX.LLIG.NP.MAP6.W0 13 /r VCVTSH2SS xmm1{k1}{z}, xmm2, xmm3/m16 {sae} A V/V AVX512-FP16 Convert the low FP16 element in xmm3/m16 to an FP32 value and store in the low element of xmm1 subject to writemask k1. Bits 127:32 of xmm2 are copied to xmm1[127:32].

This instruction converts the low FP16 element in the second source operand to the low FP32 element of the desti-nation operand.

Bits 127:32 of the destination operand are copied from the corresponding bits of the first source operand. Bits MAXVL-1:128 of the destination operand are zeroed. The low FP16 element of the destination is updated according to the writemask.


VCVTSH2SS dest, src1, src2

IF k1[0] OR *no writemask*:

DEST.fp32[0] := Convert_fp16_to_fp32(SRC2.fp16[0])

ELSE IF *zeroing*:

DEST.fp32[0] := 0

// else dest.fp32[0] remains unchanged

DEST[127:32] := SRC1[127:32]

DEST[MAXVL-1:128] := 0
