imm_atomic_iadd (sm5 - asm)

Immediate atomic integer add to memory. Returns the value in memory before the add.

imm_atomic_iadd dst0[.single_component_mask], dst1, dstAddress[.swizzle], src0[.select_component]




[in] Contains the value in dst1 before the write.


This value must be an unordered access view (UAV) (u#). In the compute shader it can also be thread group shared memory (g#).


[in] The memory naddress.


[in] The value to add to dst1.



This instruction performs a single component 32-bit integer add of operand src0 with dst1 at 32-bit per component address dstAddress. It is insensitive to sign.

If dst1 is a u#, it may have been declared as raw, typed or structured. If typed, it must be declared as UINT/SINT with the bound resource format being R32_UINT/_SINT.

If dst1 is g#, it must be declared as raw or structured.

The value in dst1 memory before addition is returned to dst0.

The number of components taken from the address is determined by the dimensionality of dst1.

The entire operation is performed atomically.

If the shader invocation is inactive, for example if the pixel has been discarded earlier in its execution, or a pixel/sample invocation only exists to serve as a helper to a real pixel/sample for derivatives, this instruction does not alter the dst1 memory at all, and the returned value is undefined.

Out of bounds addressing on u# causes nothing to be written to memory, except if the u# is structured, and byte offset into the struct (second component of the address) is causing the out of bounds access, then the entire contents of the UAV become undefined.

Out of bounds addressing on u# or g# causes an undefined result to be returned to the shader in dst0.

This instruction applies to the following shader stages:



Because UAVs are available at all shader stages for Direct3D 11.1, this instruction applies to all shader stages for the Direct3D 11.1 runtime, which is available starting with Windows 8.
