fma performs, where possible, a fused multiply-add operation, returning
a * b + c. In use cases where the return value is eventually consumed by a variable declared asprecise:*
fma () is considered a single operation, whereas the expression
a * b + c consumed by a variable declared aspreciseis considered two operations.
- The precision of
fma() can differ from the precision of the expression
a * b + c.
fma() will be computed with the same precision as any other
fma() consumed by aprecisevariable, giving invariant results for the same input values of
Otherwise, in the absence ofpreciseconsumption, there are no special constraints on the number of operations or difference in precision between
fma () and the expression
a * b + c.
