Modern X86 Assembly Language Programming 2019 (eBook)
« on: April 24, 2019, 06:25:56 AM »
A good modern book with free source code for learning machine language: Modern X86 Assembly Language Programming Covers x86 64-bit, AVX, AVX2, and AVX-512 https://www.apress.com/gp/book/9781484240625

Quote
Gain the fundamentals of x86 64-bit assembly language programming and focus on
the updated aspects of the x86 instruction set that are most relevant to application
software development. This book covers topics including x86 64-bit programming and
Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) programming.

The focus in this second edition is exclusively on 64-bit base programming architecture
and AVX programming. Modern X86 Assembly Language Programming’s structure and
sample code are designed to help you quickly understand x86 assembly language
programming and the computational capabilities of the x86 platform. After reading
and using this book, you’ll be able to code performance-enhancing functions and
algorithms using x86 64-bit assembly language and the AVX, AVX2 and AVX-512

instruction set extensions.

What You Will Learn

Discover details of the x86 64-bit platform including its core architecture, data types,
registers, memory addressing modes, and the basic instruction set
Use the x86 64-bit instruction set to create performance-enhancing functions that
are callable from a high-level language (C++)
Employ x86 64-bit assembly language to efficiently manipulate common data types
and programming constructs including integers, text strings, arrays, and structures
Use the AVX instruction set to perform scalar floating-point arithmetic
Exploit the AVX, AVX2, and AVX-512 instruction sets to significantly accelerate the
performance of computationally-intense algorithms in problem domains such as
image processing, computer graphics, mathematics, and statistics
Apply various coding strategies and techniques to optimally exploit the x86 64-bit,
AVX, AVX2, and AVX-512 instruction sets for maximum possible performance
Who This Book Is For 

Software developers who want to learn how to write code using x86 64-bit assembly language. It’s also ideal for software developers who already have a basic understanding of x86 32-bit or 64-bit assembly language programming and are interested in learning how to exploit the SIMD capabilities of AVX, AVX2 and AVX-512.
