VCVTSI2SH—Convert a Signed Doubleword/Quadword Integer to an FP16 Value

Opcode/Instruction Op/En 64/32 bit Mode Support CPUID Feature Flag Description
EVEX.LLIG.F3.MAP5.W0 2A /r VCVTSI2SH xmm1, xmm2, r32/m32 {er} A V/V1 AVX512-FP16 Convert the signed doubleword integer in r32/m32 to an FP16 value and store the result in xmm1. Bits 127:16 of xmm2 are copied to xmm1[127:16].
EVEX.LLIG.F3.MAP5.W1 2A /r VCVTSI2SH xmm1, xmm2, r64/m64 {er} A V/N.E. AVX512-FP16 Convert the signed quadword integer in r64/m64 to an FP16 value and store the result in xmm1. Bits 127:16 of xmm2 are copied to xmm1[127:16].

NOTES: 1. Outside of 64b mode, the EVEX.W field is ignored. The instruction behaves as if W=0 was used.

This instruction converts a signed doubleword integer (or signed quadword integer if operand size is 64 bits) in the second source operand to an FP16 value in the destination operand. The result is stored in the low word of the desti-nation operand. When conversion is inexact, the value returned is rounded according to the rounding control bits in the MXCSR register or embedded rounding controls.

The second source operand can be a general-purpose register or a 32/64-bit memory location. The first source and destination operands are XMM registers. Bits 127:16 of the XMM register destination are copied from corre-sponding bits in the first source operand. Bits MAXVL-1:128 of the destination register are zeroed.

If the result of the convert operation is overflow and MXCSR.OM=0 then a SIMD exception will be raised with OE=1, PE=1.


VCVTSI2SH dest, src1, src2

IF *SRC2 is a register* and (EVEX.b = 1):




IF 64-mode and OperandSize == 64:

DEST.fp16[0] := Convert_integer64_to_fp16(SRC2.qword)


DEST.fp16[0] := Convert_integer32_to_fp16(SRC2.dword)

DEST[127:16] := SRC1[127:16]

DEST[MAXVL-1:128] := 0
