We can determine if two 128-bit sse registers xmm0 and xmm1 have exactly the same bit pattern with
Code:
pcmpeqb xmm0,xmm1
pmovmskb  eax,xmm0
cmp  ax,-1    

but unfortunately this cannot be extended to 256 bits because vpcmpeqb is not supported on 256-bit operands in AVX.
Is it possible to get the same functionality in AVX by using the floating point operations? (The floating point ops are supported in AVX.)
Code:
vcmpeqpd ymm2,ymm0,ymm1
vmovmskpd  eax,ymm2
cmp  eax,01111b    

This doesn't work because 0x8000000000000000, and 0x0000000000000000 are treated as equal. Sad

I don't have a processor with AVX to try this but maybe:
Code:
vptest ymm0,ymm1
j[c/z] ...    
Question

ah, this is very good! Thanks, cod3b453! I completely forgot about ptest.
Actually, I think the following are correct
Code:
; zero test
; if (ymm0=0), then a, else b
 vptest  ymm0,qqword[mask]
     jz  a
b:
a:

; another zero test
; if (ymm0=0), then a, else b
 vxorps  ymm1,ymm1,ymm1
 vptest  ymm1,ymm0
     jc  a
b:
a:

; equality test
; if (ymm0=ymm1), then a, else b
 vxorps  ymm2,ymm0,ymm1
 vptest  ymm2,qqword[mask]
     jz  a
b:
a:

align 32
mask: dq -1,-1,-1,-1
