Hi,

I am currently playing around with some vectorization attempts and am a little bit stuck at vector type conversion.

My goal is to be able to convert a `vector<8xf64>`

to a `vector<8xf32>`

. The `vector<8xf64>`

is obtained through a `vector.load`

of f64 memrefs, but the rest of the program uses f32 so I need f32 in the long run. I was hoping for something similar to _mm256_cvtpd_ps or a vector version of std.fptrunc, but can’t seem to find anything like that in the dialects.

I know that I could just read scalar values from the memrefs, apply `std.fptrunc`

and then put them into a vector, but this seems inefficient to me compared to a single `vector.load`

.

So my question is, what is the best way to convert a `vector<8xf64>`

to a `vector<8xf32>`

? Is there maybe even some simple type casting I missed scanning the docs?

Thank you in advance!
