### Description ¶

This instruction performs a SIMD computation of the approximate reciprocals of the square roots of 16 packed single-precision floating-point values in the source operand (the second operand) and stores the packed single-precision floating-point results in the destination operand (the first operand) according to the writemask. The maximum relative error for this approximation is less than 2-14.

EVEX.512 encoded version: The source operand can be a ZMM register, a 512-bit memory location or a 512-bit vector broadcasted from a 32-bit memory location. The destination operand is a ZMM register, conditionally updated using writemask k1.

EVEX.256 encoded version: The source operand is a YMM register, a 256-bit memory location, or a 256-bit vector broadcasted from a 32-bit memory location. The destination operand is a YMM register, conditionally updated using writemask k1.

EVEX.128 encoded version: The source operand is a XMM register, a 128-bit memory location, or a 128-bit vector broadcasted from a 32-bit memory location. The destination operand is a XMM register, conditionally updated using writemask k1.

The VRSQRT14PS instruction is not affected by the rounding control bits in the MXCSR register. When a source value is a 0.0, an ∞ with the sign of the source value is returned. When the source operand is an +∞ then +ZERO value is returned. A denormal source value is treated as zero only if DAZ bit is set in MXCSR. Otherwise it is treated correctly and performs the approximation with the specified masked response. When a source value is a negative value (other than 0.0) a floating-point QNaN_indefinite is returned. When a source value is an SNaN or QNaN, the SNaN is converted to a QNaN or the source QNaN is returned.

MXCSR exception flags are not affected by this instruction and floating-point exceptions are not reported.

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

### Operation ¶

#### VRSQRT14PS (EVEX encoded versions) ¶

```(KL, VL) = (4, 128), (8, 256), (16, 512)
FOR j := 0 TO KL-1
i := j * 32
IF k1[j] OR *no writemask* THEN
IF (EVEX.b = 1) AND (SRC *is memory*)
THEN DEST[i+31:i] := APPROXIMATE(1.0/ SQRT(SRC[31:0]));
ELSE DEST[i+31:i] := APPROXIMATE(1.0/ SQRT(SRC[i+31:i]));
FI;
ELSE
THEN *DEST[i+31:i] remains unchanged*
ELSE
DEST[i+31:i] := 0
FI;
FI;
ENDFOR;
DEST[MAXVL-1:VL] := 0
