I wish to share this find with galfar and the rest here, it's related to processing 16 bit floating point values:

There is already a pascal implementation of this that i have found:

https://github.com/SAmeis/xplib/blob/master/DeHL/Library/src/Math/DeHL.Math.Half.pas

I hope you find it useful, surely a lookup table based solution with no cpu code branching is a big improvement if you process 16 bit floating point values regularly.
