I did not find bitfield instructions mentioned in the Wiki so I assumed that you had omitted them.
I’m sorry, my question was not if both operations could finish in one cycle, but if the second operation could finish in the next cycle. In other words, if each op would normally have a latency of four cycles each, so that if executed in sequence their total latency would be eight, could that be reduced to five cycles by bundling them together and have them execute in different phases?
