Complete Guide to Mmx Technology by David Bistry,Intel Corporation

The authors of Complete Guide to MMX Technology are Uri Weiser (MMX technology architecture manager); David Bistry, Carole Dulong, Mickey Gutman, Lawrence M. Mennemeier, Millino Mittal, and Alex Peleg (MMX technology architects); and Michael Julier and Michael Keith (MMX applications specialists). They are based at IntelÕs sites in Santa Clara, California, Haifa, Israel, Chandler, Arizona, and Portland, Oregon. One drawback is that the book needs to be updated for the Pentium Pro and Pentium II vagaries.

The Complete Guide to Mmx Technology. Let key members of Intel's MMX architecture team show you how to boost multimedia application performance! Don't let the MMX technology revolution leave you behind! Find out how to use Intel's new MMX instruction set,now being built into every microprocessor,to vastly improve the performance of multimedia and other computer-intensive applications. This instruction set,with its advanced SIMD (Single Instruction,Multiple Data) processing,achieves maximum throughput for your data.

Intel's new MMX TM technology-now built into every Pentium and other Intel Desktop processor-can dramatically increase the performance of multimedia applications. This unique book, written by members of the Intel.

Intel’s MMX™ technology is an extension to the basic Intel Architecture (IA) designed to improve performance of multimedia and communication algorithms. The technology includes new instructions and data types, which achieve new levels of performance for these algorithms on host processors. MMX technology exploits the parallelism inherent in many of these algorithms. Other members of the core MMX technology definition team were David Bistry, Robert Dreyer, Carole Dulong, Steve Fischer, Andy Glew, Eiichi Kowashi, Koby Gottlieb, Larry Mennemeier, Mike Keith, and Benny Eitan. A. Peleg, U. Weiser, MMX™ Technology Extension to the Intel Architecture, IEEE Micro, Vol. 16, No. 4, August 1996, pp. 42-50. Peleg, S. Wilkie, U. Weiser, Intel MMX for Multimedia PCs, Communications of the ACM, Vol. 40, No. 1, January 1997, pp. 25-38. Providing a complete introduction to MMX from basic to advanced concepts, this text also offers guideline on how to program and use MMX in commercial applications. The accompanyig CD-ROM includes all code examples from the book.

5, 1996 - Intel Corporation released details to the software community of its MMX technology. At the time it was the most significant enhancement to the Intel Architecture since the i386 processor. MMX has been the first enhancement to the x86 instruction set in more than ten years. Shortly after, AMD cross-licensed MMX to incorporate it in its AMD-K6 processor and Cyrix licensed MMX for its 6x86MX processor. Both processors have been reported to support a standard set of 57 MMX instructions  . Intel provided support for the MMX instruction set in its VTune performance tuning software. Note: Intel Corporation claims MMX to be its brand name and not an acronym for n. 2. I. Ntroduction to. MMX. Technology.

Reviews: 2
The book is good for beginner, but the more advanced instructions in SSE, SSE2, SSE3, and SSE4 in are not covered.
Most of the book is written in a expository way, but some chapters and all the appendices are useful for reference. The example MMX programs are great and the accompanying CDROM is more than worth the price of the book. One drawback is that the book needs to be updated for the Pentium Pro and Pentium II vagaries.
