UCOMISS—Unordered Compare Scalar Single-Precision Floating-Point Values and Set EFLAGS

Opcode/Instruction Op/En 64/32 bit Mode Support CPUID Feature Flag Description
0F 2E /r UCOMISS xmm1, xmm2/m32 RM V/V SSE Compare lower single-precision floating-point value in xmm1 register with lower singleprecision floating-point value in xmm2/mem and set the status flags accordingly.
VEX.LIG.0F.WIG 2E /r VUCOMISS xmm1, xmm2/m32 RM V/V AVX Compare low single precision floating-point values in xmm1 and xmm2/mem32 and set the EFLAGS flags accordingly.

Performs an unordered compare of the single-precision floating-point values in the low doublewords of the source operand 1 (first operand) and the source operand 2 (second operand), and sets the ZF, PF, and CF flags in the EFLAGS register according to the result (unordered, greater than, less than, or equal). The OF, SF and AF flags in the EFLAGS register are set to 0. The unordered result is returned if either source operand is a NaN (QNaN or SNaN). The sign of zero is ignored for comparisons, so that -0.0 is equal to +0.0.

Source operand 1 is an XMM register; source operand 2 can be an XMM register or a 32 bit memory location.

The UCOMISS instruction differs from the COMISS instruction in that it signals a SIMD floating-point invalid operation exception (#I) only when a source operand is an SNaN. The COMISS instruction signals an invalid operation exception if a source operand is either a QNaN or an SNaN.

The EFLAGS register is not updated if an unmasked SIMD floating-point exception is generated.

In 64-bit mode, using a REX prefix in the form of REX.R permits this instruction to access additional registers (XMM8-XMM15). Note: In VEX-encoded versions, VEX.vvvv is reserved and must be 1111b, otherwise instructions will #UD.
