SIMD.js is a new API for performing SIMD (Single Instruction Multiple Data) computations in JavaScript which is being developed by Google, Intel, Mozilla, and others. For example, it defines a new Float32x4 type which represents 4 float32 values packed up together. The API contains functions which operate in parallel on each value, including all basic arithmetic operations, and operations to rearrange, load, and store such values. For a more complete introduction to SIMD.js, see Dan Gohman’s recent blog post about SIMD.js.
