Stores in memory two double-precision values at two consecutive doubleword locations.
Note: The stfqx instruction is supported only in the POWER2 implementation of the POWER architecture.
The stfqx instruction stores in memory the contents of floating-point register (FPR) FRS at the location specified by the effective address (EA).
If general-purpose register (GPR) RA is not 0, the EA is the sum of the contents of GPR RA and GPR RB. If GPR RA is 0, the EA is the contents of GPR RB. The contents of FPR FRS is stored into the doubleword of storage at the EA. If FPR FRS is 31, then the contents of FPR 0 is stored into the doubleword at EA+8; otherwise, the contents of FRS+1 is stored into the doubleword at EA+8.
The stfqx instruction has one syntax form and does not affect the Floating-Point Status and Control Register or Condition Register Field 0.
|FRS||Specifies the first of two floating-point registers that contain the values to be stored.|
|RA||Specifies one source general-purpose register for the EA calculation.|
|RB||Specifies the second source general-purpose register for the EA calculation.|
