The Intel Software Development Emulator is a functional emulator for new and upcoming instruction set extensions. The emulator is based on the Pin dynamic binary instrumentation system (and XED). It emulates the new instructions in the SSE4, AES, PCLMULQDQ, and RTM, BMI1, and BMI2 Intel AVX, AVX2, and AVX512 instruction set extensions. This allows developers to gain familiarity with Intel's upcoming instruction set extensions.
