is an optional condition code.
specifies the destination register, the first operandregister, and the second operand register, for a quadword operation.
specifies the destination register, the first operandregister, and the second operand register, for a doubleword operation.
The result datatype is
These instructions take the absolute value of each element in a vector, and compare it with the absolute value of the corresponding element of a second vector. If the condition is true, the corresponding element in the destination vector is set to all ones. Otherwise, it is set to all zeros.
On disassembly, the
VACLT pseudo-instructions are disassembled to the corresponding
VACGT instructions, with the operands reversed.
