Used for 64-bit multimedia operands with MMX and SSE (XMM) instructions.


MMWORD was added to MASM in Visual C++ 2005.

MMWORD is a type.  Prior to MMWORD being added to MASM, equivalent functionality could have been achieved with:

mov mm0, qword ptr [ebx]

While both instructions work on 64-bit operands, QWORD is the type for 64-bit unsigned integers and MMWORD is the type for a 64-bit multimedia value.

MMWORD is intended to represent the same type as __m64.

movq     mm0, mmword ptr [ebx]
