UCOMISS — Unordered Compare Scalar Single-Precision Floating-Point Values and Set EFLAGS

Opcode/Instruction Op/En 64/32 bit Mode Support CPUID Feature Flag Description
NP 0F 2E /r UCOMISS xmm1, xmm2/m32 A V/V SSE Compare low single-precision floating-point values in xmm1 and xmm2/mem32 and set the EFLAGS flags accordingly.
VEX.LIG.0F.WIG 2E /r VUCOMISS xmm1, xmm2/m32 A V/V AVX Compare low single-precision floating-point values in xmm1 and xmm2/mem32 and set the EFLAGS flags accordingly.
EVEX.LLIG.0F.W0 2E /r VUCOMISS xmm1, xmm2/m32{sae} B V/V AVX512F Compare low single-precision floating-point values in xmm1 and xmm2/mem32 and set the EFLAGS flags accordingly.

B Tuple1 Scalar ModRM:reg (w) ModRM:r/m (r) NA NA

Description

Compares the single-precision floating-point values in the low doublewords of operand 1 (first operand) and operand 2 (second operand), and sets the ZF, PF, and CF flags in the EFLAGS register according to the result (unordered, greater than, less than, or equal). The OF, SF and AF flags in the EFLAGS register are set to 0. The unordered result is returned if either source operand is a NaN (QNaN or SNaN).

Operand 1 is an XMM register; operand 2 can be an XMM register or a 32 bit memory location.

The UCOMISS instruction differs from the COMISS instruction in that it signals a SIMD floating-point invalid operation exception (#I) only if a source operand is an SNaN. The COMISS instruction signals an invalid operation exception when a source operand is either a QNaN or SNaN.

The EFLAGS register is not updated if an unmasked SIMD floating-point exception is generated.

Note: VEX.vvvv and EVEX.vvvv are reserved and must be 1111b, otherwise instructions will #UD.

Software should ensure VCOMISS is encoded with VEX.L=0. Encoding VCOMISS with VEX.L=1 may encounter unpredictable behavior across different processor generations.

Operation

RESULT := UnorderedCompare(DEST[31:0] <> SRC[31:0]) {
(* Set EFLAGS *) CASE (RESULT) OF
    UNORDERED: ZF,PF,CF := 111;
    GREATER_THAN: ZF,PF,CF := 000;
    LESS_THAN: ZF,PF,CF := 001;
    EQUAL: ZF,PF,CF := 100;
ESAC;
OF, AF, SF := 0; }
