ARM contains the supported CPU features of the current ARM (32-bit) platform. All feature flags are false if:

1. the current platform is not arm, or
2. the current operating system is not Linux.

var ARM64 struct {
	HasFP       bool // Floating-point instruction set (always available)
	HasASIMD    bool // Advanced SIMD (always available)

	HasSVE      bool // Scalable Vector Extensions
	HasASIMDFHM bool // Advanced SIMD multiplication FP16 to FP32
	// contains filtered or unexported fields
}

ARM64 contains the supported CPU features of the current ARMv8(aarch64) platform. If the current platform is not arm64 then all feature flags are false.


var Initialized bool

Initialized reports whether the CPU features were initialized.

For some GOOS/GOARCH combinations initialization of the CPU features depends on reading an operating specific file, e.g. /proc/self/auxv on linux/arm Initialized will report false if reading the file fails.


var MIPS64X struct {
	HasMSA bool // MIPS SIMD architecture
	// contains filtered or unexported fields
}

MIPS64X contains the supported CPU features of the current mips64/mips64le platforms. If the current platform is not mips64/mips64le or the current operating system is not Linux then all feature flags are false.


var PPC64 struct {
	HasDARN  bool // Hardware random number generator (requires kernel enablement)
	HasSCV   bool // Syscall vectored (requires kernel enablement)
	IsPOWER8 bool // ISA v2.07 (POWER8)
	IsPOWER9 bool // ISA v3.00 (POWER9)
	// contains filtered or unexported fields
}

PPC64 contains the supported CPU features of the current ppc64/ppc64le platforms. If the current platform is not ppc64/ppc64le then all feature flags are false.

For ppc64/ppc64le, it is safe to check only for ISA level starting on ISA v3.00, since there are no optional categories. There are some exceptions that also require kernel support to work (DARN, SCV), so there are feature bits for those as well. The minimum processor requirement is POWER8 (ISA 2.07). The struct is padded to avoid false sharing.


var S390X struct {
	HasZARCH  bool // z/Architecture mode is active [mandatory]
	HasSTFLE  bool // store facility list extended
	HasLDISP  bool // long (20-bit) displacements
	HasEIMM   bool // 32-bit immediates
	HasDFP    bool // decimal floating point
	HasETF3EH bool // ETF-3 enhanced
	HasMSA    bool // message security assist (CPACF)
	HasAES    bool // KM-AES{128,192,256} functions
	HasAESCBC bool // KMC-AES{128,192,256} functions
	HasAESCTR bool // KMCTR-AES{128,192,256} functions
	HasAESGCM bool // KMA-GCM-AES{128,192,256} functions
	HasGHASH  bool // KIMD-GHASH function
	HasSHA1   bool // K{I,L}MD-SHA-1 functions
	HasSHA256 bool // K{I,L}MD-SHA-256 functions
	HasSHA512 bool // K{I,L}MD-SHA-512 functions
	HasSHA3   bool // K{I,L}MD-SHA3-{224,256,384,512} and K{I,L}MD-SHAKE-{128,256} functions
	HasVX     bool // vector facility
	HasVXE    bool // vector-enhancements facility 1
	// contains filtered or unexported fields
}

S390X contains the supported CPU features of the current IBM Z (s390x) platform. If the current platform is not IBM Z then all feature flags are false.

S390X is padded to avoid false sharing. Further HasVX is only set if the OS supports vector registers in addition to the STFLE feature bit being set.


var X86 struct {
	HasAES       bool // AES hardware implementation (AES NI)
	HasADX       bool // Multi-precision add-carry instruction extensions
	HasAVX       bool // Advanced vector extension
	HasAVX2      bool // Advanced vector extension 2
	HasBMI1      bool // Bit manipulation instruction set 1
	HasBMI2      bool // Bit manipulation instruction set 2
	HasERMS      bool // Enhanced REP for MOVSB and STOSB
	HasFMA       bool // Fused-multiply-add instructions
	HasOSXSAVE   bool // OS supports XSAVE/XRESTOR for saving/restoring XMM registers.
	HasPCLMULQDQ bool // PCLMULQDQ instruction - most often used for AES-GCM
	HasPOPCNT    bool // Hamming weight instruction POPCNT.
	HasRDRAND    bool // RDRAND instruction (on-chip random number generator)
	HasRDSEED    bool // RDSEED instruction (on-chip random number generator)
	HasSSE2      bool // Streaming SIMD extension 2 (always available on amd64)
	HasSSE3      bool // Streaming SIMD extension 3
	HasSSSE3     bool // Supplemental streaming SIMD extension 3
	HasSSE41     bool // Streaming SIMD extension 4 and 4.1
	HasSSE42     bool // Streaming SIMD extension 4 and 4.2
	// contains filtered or unexported fields
}

X86 contains the supported CPU features of the current X86/AMD64 platform. If the current platform is not X86/AMD64 then all feature flags are false.

X86 is padded to avoid false sharing. Further the HasAVX and HasAVX2 are only set if the OS supports XMM and YMM registers in addition to the CPUID feature bit being set.
