XMVectorDivide method

Divides one instance of XMVECTOR by a second instance, returning the result in a third instance.

The XMVectorDivide divides each component of an instance of XMVECTOR Data Type by the corresponding component in a second instance of XMVECTOR, returning a new XMVECTOR instance containing the result.


XMVECTOR XMVectorDivide(
  [in] XMVECTOR V1,
  [in] XMVECTOR V2


V1 [in]

XMVECTOR instance whose components are the dividends of the division operation.

V2 [in]

XMVECTOR instance whose components are the divisors of the division operation.

Return value

XMVECTOR instance whose components are the quotient of the division of each component of V1 by each corresponding component of V2.


The following code is generally faster than calling XMVectorDivide if the loss of precision is tolerable.

XMVECTOR R = XMVectorReciprocalEst(V2)    

Platform Requirements

Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 or Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 with the Windows SDK for Windows 8. Supported for Win32 desktop apps, Windows Store apps, and Windows Phone 8 apps.
