Description

Converts two SIMD registers of packed single data into a single register of packed BF16 data.

This instruction does not support memory fault suppression.

This instruction uses “Round to nearest (even)” rounding mode. Output denormals are always flushed to zero and input denormals are always treated as zero. MXCSR is not consulted nor updated. No floating-point exceptions are generated.

Operation

VCVTNE2PS2BF16 dest, src1, src2

VL = (128, 256, 512)

KL = VL/16

origdest := dest

FOR i := 0 to KL-1:

IF k1[ i ] or *no writemask*:

IF i < KL/2:

IF src2 is memory and evex.b == 1:

t := src2.fp32[0]

ELSE:

t := src2.fp32[ i ]

ELSE:

t := src1.fp32[ i-KL/2]

// See VCVTNEPS2BF16 for definition of convert helper function

dest.word[i] := convert_fp32_to_bfloat16(t)

ELSE IF *zeroing*:

dest.word[ i ] := 0

ELSE: // Merge masking, dest element unchanged

dest.word[ i ] := origdest.word[ i ]

DEST[MAXVL-1:VL] := 0
