Description Luke Kenneth Casson Leighton 2020-03-13 12:54:52 GMT
A formal write-up of the augmentation of POWER ISA to switch on IEEE754 FP16 (also useable for  FP128) is needed, to be proposed to the OpenPOWER Foundation at a later date.
Comment 1 Luke Kenneth Casson Leighton 2020-12-02 15:13:22 GMT
we may actually do BF16 rather than FP128
