i would also  add,  that if 8 or 16 registers are needed, why do we only have one register, , V0.  if this were true we would need to multi-plex  between varius vector registers and V0

i believe i have interpreted your commengt of 8 or 16 registers, correctly



------------------------------------


I don’t think a separate mask register will do at all.  It would take a mask register file with at least 8 and maybe 16 registers.  Lots of compare results need to be kept and operations need to be done on mask registers. I don't think we should have a separate mask register file.
