_mm_min_epu16

Microsoft Specific

Emits the Streaming SIMD Extensions 4 (SSE4) instruction pminuw. This instruction chooses the smaller value of the two parameters.

__m128i _mm_min_epu16( 
   __m128i a,
   __m128i b 
);

[in] a

A 128-bit parameter that contains eight 16-bit unsigned integers.

[in] b

A 128-bit parameter that contains eight 16-bit unsigned integers.

A 128-bit parameter that can be defined with the following equations:

r0 := (a0 < b0) ? a0 : b0
r1 := (a1 < b1) ? a1 : b1
...
r7 := (a7 < b7) ? a7 : b7

x86, x64

Header file <smmintrin.h>

r0-r7, a0-a7, and b0-b7 are the sequentially ordered 16-bit components of return value r and parameters a and b. r0, a0, and b0 are the least significant 16 bits.

Before you use this intrinsic, software must ensure that the processor supports the instruction.
