Produktbeschreibung
Gain the fundamentals of x86 64-bit assembly language programming and focus on

the updated aspects of the x86 instruction set that are most relevant to application

software development. This book covers topics including x86 64-bit programming and

Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) programming.

The focus in this second edition is exclusively on 64-bit base programming architecture

and AVX programming. Modern X86 Assembly Language Programming's structure and

sample code are designed to help you quickly understand x86 assembly language

programming and the computational capabilities of the x86 platform. After reading
and using this book, you'll be able to code performance-enhancing functions and

algorithms using x86 64-bit assembly language and the AVX, AVX2 and AVX-512

instruction set extensions.

What You Will Learn

Discover details of the x86 64-bit platform including its core architecture, data types,

registers, memory addressing modes, and the basic instruction set

Use the x86 64-bit instruction set to create performance-enhancing functions that

are callable from a high-level language (C++)

Employ x86 64-bit assembly language to efficiently manipulate common data types

and programming constructs including integers, text strings, arrays, and structures

Use the AVX instruction set to perform scalar floating-point arithmetic

Exploit the AVX, AVX2, and AVX-512 instruction sets to significantly accelerate the

performance of computationally-intense algorithms in problem domains such as

image processing, computer graphics, mathematics, and statistics

Apply various coding strategies and techniques to optimally exploit the x86 64-bit,

AVX, AVX2, and AVX-512 instruction sets for maximum possible performance

Who This Book Is For

Software developers who want to learn how to write code using x86 64-bit assembly language. It's also ideal for software developers who already have a basic understanding of x86 32-bit or 64-bit assembly language programming and are interested in learning how to exploit the SIMD capabilities of AVX, AVX2 and AVX-512.
