The Compare (CMP) instruction is functionally identical to the Subtract instruction except that it does not store the resulting value in the destination register. The Compare instruction subtracts the value at the specified address from the value in the specified destination register and sets or clears the Sign Flag, Zero Flag, Overflow Flag, and Carry Flag according to the result, but the final result is not stored in the destination register, leaving the register unchanged.
