The demand for improved SIMD floating-point performance on general-purpose x86-compatible microprocessors is rising. At the same time, there is a conflicting demand in the low-power computing market for a reduction in power consumption. Along with this, there is the absolute necessity of backward compatibility for x86-compatible microprocessors, which includes the support of x87 scientific floating-point instructions. The combined effect is that there is a need for low-power, low-cost floating… CONTINUE READING
