VCGE (register)

Vector Compare Greater Than or Equal takes each element in a vector, and compares it with the corresponding element of a second vector. If the first is greater than or equal to the second, the corresponding element in the destination vector is set to all ones. Otherwise, it is set to all zeros.

The operand vector elements are the same type, and are signed integers, unsigned integers, or floating-point numbers. The result vector elements are fields the same size as the operand vector elements.

Depending on settings in the CPACR, NSACR, and HCPTR registers, and the Security state and PE mode in which the instruction is executed, an attempt to execute the instruction might be undefined, or trapped to Hyp mode. For more information see Enabling Advanced SIMD and floating-point support.

This instruction is used by the pseudo-instruction VCLE (register).

It has encodings from the following instruction sets: A32 ( A1 and A2 ) and T32 ( T1 and T2 ) .

CONSTRAINED UNPREDICTABLE behavior

If sz == '1' && InITBlock(), then one of the following behaviors must occur:

  • The instruction is undefined.
  • The instruction executes as if it passes the Condition code check.
  • The instruction executes as NOP. This means it behaves as if it fails the Condition code check.
