EVEX.128.66.0F38.W0 8D /r VPERMB xmm1 {k1}{z}, xmm2, xmm3/m128 A V/V AVX512VL AVX512_VBMI Permute bytes in xmm3/m128 using byte indexes in xmm2 and store the result in xmm1 using writemask k1.
EVEX.256.66.0F38.W0 8D /r VPERMB ymm1 {k1}{z}, ymm2, ymm3/m256 A V/V AVX512VL AVX512_VBMI Permute bytes in ymm3/m256 using byte indexes in ymm2 and store the result in ymm1 using writemask k1.
EVEX.512.66.0F38.W0 8D /r VPERMB zmm1 {k1}{z}, zmm2, zmm3/m512 A V/V AVX512_VBMI Permute bytes in zmm3/m512 using byte indexes in zmm2 and store the result in zmm1 using writemask k1.

Description

Copies bytes from the second source operand (the third operand) to the destination operand (the first operand) according to the byte indices in the first source operand (the second operand). Note that this instruction permits a byte in the source operand to be copied to more than one location in the destination operand.

Only the low 6(EVEX.512)/5(EVEX.256)/4(EVEX.128) bits of each byte index is used to select the location of the source byte from the second source operand.

The first source operand is a ZMM/YMM/XMM register. The second source operand can be a ZMM/YMM/XMM reg-ister, a 512/256/128-bit memory location. The destination operand is a ZMM/YMM/XMM register updated at byte granularity by the writemask k1.

Operation

VPERMB (EVEX encoded versions)

(KL, VL) = (16, 128), (32, 256), (64, 512)

IF VL = 128:

n := 3;

ELSE IF VL = 256:

n := 4;

ELSE IF VL = 512:

n := 5;

FI;

FOR j := 0 TO KL-1:

id := SRC1[j*8 + n : j*8] ; // location of the source byte

IF k1[j] OR *no writemask* THEN

DEST[j*8 + 7: j*8] := SRC2[id*8 +7: id*8];

ELSE IF zeroing-masking THEN

DEST[j*8 + 7: j*8] := 0;

*ELSE

DEST[j*8 + 7: j*8] remains unchanged*

FI

ENDFOR

DEST[MAX_VL-1:VL] := 0;
