Code Mnemonic Description
E6 ib OUT imm8, AL Output byte in AL to I/O port address imm8
E7 ib OUT imm8, AX Output word in AX to I/O port address imm8
E7 ib OUT imm8, EAX Output doubleword in EAX to I/O port address imm8
EE OUT DX, AL Output byte in AL to I/O port address in DX
EF OUT DX, AX Output word in AX to I/O port address in DX
EF OUT DX, EAX Output doubleword in EAX to I/O port address in DX

Description
Copies the value from the second operand (source operand) to the I/O port specified with the destination operand (first operand). The source operand can be register AL, AX, or EAX, depending on the size of the port being accessed (8, 16, or 32 bits, respectively); the destination operand can be a byte-immediate or the DX register. Using a byte immediate allows I/O port addresses 0 to 255 to be accessed; using the DX register as a source operand allows I/O ports from 0 to 65,535 to be accessed.

The size of the I/O port being accessed is determined by the opcode for an 8-bit I/O port or by the operand-size attribute of the instruction for a 16- or 32-bit I/O port.

At the machine code level, I/O instructions are shorter when accessing 8-bit I/O ports. Here, the upper eight bits of the port address will be 0.

This instruction is only useful for accessing I/O ports located in the processor's I/O address space.
