triton.language.inline_asm_elementwise(asm: str, constraints: str, args: Sequence, dtype: dtype | Sequence[dtype], is_pure: bool, pack: int)

Execute inline assembly over a tensor. Essentially, this is map where the function is inline assembly.

The input tensors args are implicitly broadcasted to the same shape.

dtype can be a tuple of types, in which case the output is a tuple of tensors.

Each invocation of the inline asm processes pack elements at a time. Exactly which set of inputs a block receives is unspecified. Input elements of size less than 4 bytes are packed into 4-byte registers.

This op does not support empty dtype – the inline asm must return at least one tensor, even if you don’t need it. You can work around this by returning a dummy tensor of arbitrary type; it shouldn’t cost you anything if you don’t use it.

Example using [PTX]( assembly:

@triton.jit def kernel(A, B, C, D, BLOCK: tl.constexpr):

a = tl.load(A + tl.arange(0, BLOCK)) # uint8 tensor b = tl.load(B + tl.arange(0, BLOCK)) # float32 tensor

# For each (a,b) in zip(a,b), perform the following: # - Let ai be a converted to int32. # - Let af be a converted to float. # - Let m be the max of ai and b. # - Return ai and mi. # Do the above 4 elements at a time. (c, d) = tl.inline_asm_elementwise(

asm=””” {

// Unpack a into ai. .reg .b8 tmp<4>; mov.b32 {tmp0, tmp1, tmp2, tmp3}, $8; cvt.u32.u8 $0, tmp0; cvt.u32.u8 $1, tmp1; cvt.u32.u8 $2, tmp2; cvt.u32.u8 $3, tmp3;

} // Convert ai to float. cvt.rn.f32.s32 $4, $0; cvt.rn.f32.s32 $5, $1; cvt.rn.f32.s32 $6, $2; cvt.rn.f32.s32 $7, $3; // Take max of ai and b. max.f32 $4, $4, $9; max.f32 $5, $5, $10; max.f32 $6, $6, $11; max.f32 $7, $7, $12; “””, constraints=(

# 8 output registers, namely # $0=ai0, $1=ai1, $2=ai2, $3=ai3, # $4=m0, $5=m1, $6=m2, $7=m3. “=r,=r,=r,=r,=r,=r,=r,=r,” # 5 input registers, namely # $8=ai, # $9=b0, $10=b1, $11=b2, $12=b3. # The four elements from a are all packed into one register. “r,r,r,r,r”),

args=[a, b], dtype=(tl.int32, tl.float32), is_pure=True, pack=4,

) + tl.arange(0, BLOCK), c) + tl.arange(0, BLOCK), d)

  • asm – assembly to run. Must match target’s assembly format.

  • constraints – asm constraints in [LLVM format](

  • args – the input tensors, whose values are passed to the asm block

  • dtype – the element type(s) of the returned tensor(s)

  • is_pure – if true, the compiler assumes the asm block has no side-effects

  • pack – the number of elements to be processed by one instance of inline assembly

  • _builder – the builder


one tensor or a tuple of tensors of the given dtypes
