VSUBSH—Subtract Scalar FP16 Value

Opcode/Instruction Op/En 64/32 bit Mode Support CPUID Feature Flag Description
EVEX.LLIG.F3.MAP5.W0 5C /r VSUBSH xmm1{k1}{z}, xmm2, xmm3/m16 {er} A V/V AVX512-FP16 Subtract the low FP16 value in xmm3/m16 from xmm2 and store the result in xmm1 subject to writemask k1. Bits 127:16 from xmm2 are copied to xmm1[127:16].

This instruction subtracts the low FP16 value from the second source operand from the corresponding value in the first source operand, storing the FP16 result in the destination operand. Bits 127:16 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.


VSUBSH (EVEX encoded versions)

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




IF k1[0] OR *no writemask*:

DEST.fp16[0] := SRC1.fp16[0] - SRC2.fp16[0]

ELSE IF *zeroing*:

DEST.fp16[0] := 0

// else dest.fp16[0] remains unchanged

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

DEST[MAXVL-1:128] := 0
