AMD Bulldozer 2 to introduce new extensions

Posted on Monday, November 08 2010 @ 17:46:51 CET by

X-bit Labs reports AMD's Bulldozer NG architecture will introduce a couple of new extensions:
AMD recently added several new extensions for the "upcoming bdver2 processors" into the set of patches for GNU operating system, findings of a famous blogger reveal. The fact that Advanced Micro Devices made the new extensions available under non-disclosure agreement to select software developers mean that the company's Bulldozer Version 2.0 - or, perhaps, Bulldozer NG - may be just several years away.

The new extensions that should be supported by the Bulldozer 2 processors are the following:

* BMI - Bit Manipulation Instructions
* TBM - Trailing Bit Manipulation
* FMA3 - three operand FMA [fused multiply-add] instructions
