It sounds interesting...you write the mmx operations with the help of a high level tool...then you cut and paste the optimized assembly code into MASM.

Have a look :

Thanks for the link!

I don't agree that any optimizer can compare with a human, but certainly assisting the programmer with MMX would be a great asset. I'm going back to reading his tuts...

I agree with you fully bitRAKE. I have a hard time believing its the "BEST" approach.

As well, the tut's are quite interesting (as a new commer to MMX myself ;) )

But i havent seen alot of *great* info here, just new thoughts to consider (like U, V optomization ;) )

But the pics are nice :grin:

The most comfortable traditional way to learn mmx (and x86 assembly, too) is to go to the html-helppage of nasm (very good and organized info of x86 opcodes and mmx instructions)

http://www.octium.net/oldnasm/docs/

and save it to your harddisk.

Then you start CONTEXT (a very good freeware editor with x86 syntax highlighting) and your browser with the opcode help.

Now you have all info you need for assembly/mmx-programming easily accessible.
