STMXCSR — Store MXCSR Register State

Opcode*/Instruction Op/En 64/32 bit Mode Support CPUID Feature Flag Description
NP 0F AE /3 STMXCSR m32 M V/V SSE Store contents of MXCSR register to m32.
VEX.LZ.0F.WIG AE /3 VSTMXCSR m32 M V/V AVX Store contents of MXCSR register to m32.

Instruction Operand Encoding

Op/En Operand 1 Operand 2 Operand 3 Operand 4
M ModRM:r/m (w) NA NA NA


Stores the contents of the MXCSR control and status register to the destination operand. The destination operand is a 32-bit memory location. The reserved bits in the MXCSR register are stored as 0s.

This instruction’s operation is the same in non-64-bit modes and 64-bit mode.

VEX.L must be 0, otherwise instructions will #UD.

Note: In VEX-encoded versions, VEX.vvvv is reserved and must be 1111b, otherwise instructions will #UD.

#UD If VEX.L= 1,
If VEX.vvvv ≠ 1111B.
