OK, this is why provocation and trolling is useful at times. People start posting cool stuff like this code above... ;) Thanks!

Wrong! Trolling always sucks. You could have just asked nicely.

Hi Gunnar,
 
Can we imagine to use the AMMX power to emulate a 68882 FPU through a library?

Knowing Gunnar, AMMX2 will likely support floating point operations but probably not all the fancy rounding modes of a 68882.  Probably more like the floating point ops of the 68040 or 68060 internally.

Presently AMMX has two data types supported for the base unit of a vector:  8 byte values per 64-bit vector register or 4 16-bit word values per vector register.
