The DirectXMath API provides SIMD-friendly C++ types and functions for common linear algebra and graphics math operations common to DirectX applications. The library provides optimized versions for Windows 32-bit (x86), Windows 64-bit (x64), and Windows RT through SSE2 and ARM-NEON intrinsics support in the Visual Studio compiler.

For developers new to DirectXMath, you may want to consider using the SimpleMath wrapper in the DirectX Tool Kit as a starting point.
