Thanks for the reply, I've been reading the info in those links myself,
from what I understand the VMX128 opcodes are an extention, that is,
they are added on top of the existing VMX opcodes, isn't that correct?
If not, then you're right and I will go forth and fix the data on the
tables. Also, I noticed something else, those opcodes, while on 2007
binutils, are not in the current version of binutils-and I guess that
there are no respective intrinsics in gcc for that matter. Anyone by
any chance knows why? If VMX128 is a completely dead and obsolete SIMD
unit then perhaps I should not include it, it has been very hard
finding documentation on it as it, the only things I could find were




However, these include some -probably informative- docs on
xds.xbox.com, which does not exist anymore. So the links you mentioned
and the above are the only info I could find on vmx128.

Anyway, thanks a lot for your time.
