Intel Pentium CPU Instruction Set Reference

MOVSX instruction - Move with Sign-Extension

Code Mnemonic Description
0F BE / r MOVSX r16, r/m8 Move byte to word with sign-extension
0F BE / r MOVSX r32, r/m8 Move byte to doubleword, sign-extension
0F BF / r MOVSX r32, r/m16 Move word to doubleword, sign-extension


Copies the contents of the source operand (register or memory location) to the destination operand (register) and sign extends the value to 16 or 32 bits (see Figure 6-5 in the Intel Architecture Software Developer's Manual, Volume 1). The size of the converted value depends on the operand-size attribute.

Operands Bytes Clocks
reg, reg 3 3 NP
reg, mem 3 + d(0, 1, 2, 4) 3 NP

(Note: destination reg is 16 or 32-bits; source is 8 or 16 bits)
