The main question here is why I can compile with earlier version of compiler that has AVX support but code fails at run-time?
Is code failing to compile with latest compiler (11.1.065 or 12.0) due to manner in which ASM is being used (eg. loading xmm1 with double-quad words instead of native 16-bit ints)
AVX support for this instruction is now disallowed?
Appreciate your feedback.
