The instruction compares data from two strings based on the encoded value in the imm8 byte (see Section 4.1, “Imm8 Control Byte Operation for PCMPESTRI / PCMPESTRM / PCMPISTRI / PCMPISTRM”) generating a mask stored to XMM0.
Each string is represented by a single value. The value is an xmm (or possibly m128 for the second operand) which contains the data elements of the string (byte or word data). Each input byte/word is augmented with a valid/invalid tag. A byte/word is considered valid only if it has a lower index than the least significant null byte/word. (The least significant null byte/word is also considered invalid.)
The comparison and aggregation operation are performed according to the encoded value of Imm8 bit fields (see Section 4.1). As defined by imm8, IntRes2 is then either stored to the least significant bits of XMM0 (zero extended to 128 bits) or expanded into a byte/word-mask and then stored to XMM0.
Note that the Arithmetic Flags are written in a non-standard manner in order to supply the most relevant informa-tion:
CFlag – Reset if IntRes2 is equal to zero, set otherwise
ZFlag – Set if any byte/word of xmm2/mem128 is null, reset otherwise
SFlag – Set if any byte/word of xmm1 is null, reset otherwise
OFlag – IntRes2
AFlag – Reset
PFlag – Reset
Note: In VEX.128 encoded versions, bits (MAXVL-1:128) of XMM0 are zeroed. VEX.vvvv is reserved and must be 1111b, VEX.L must be 0, otherwise the instruction will #UD.

See Table 2-21, “Type 4 Class Exception Conditions”; additionally, this instruction does not cause #GP if the memory operand is not aligned to 16 Byte boundary, and:
If VEX.L = 1.
If VEX.vvvv ≠ 1111B.
