are the destination vector, the first operand vector,and the second operand vector, for a doubleword operation.
VRSQRTS multiplies the elements of one vector by the corresponding elements of another vector, subtracts each of the results from three, divides these results by two, and places the final results into the elements of the destination vector.
The Newton-Raphson iteration:
