Abstract:
Increasing focus on multimedia applications has prompted the addition of multimedia extensions to most existing general-purpose microprocessors. this added functionality comes primarily in the addition of short SIMD instructions. Unfortunately, access to theses instructions is limited to in-line assembly and library calls. Some researches have proposed using vector compilers as a means of exploiting multimedia instructions.
