You can use "zmm3+riz" to force zmm as base register:

[hjl@gnu-6 tmp]$ cat sib.s
    vgatherqpd (%zmm2),%zmm6{%k1}
    .intel_syntax noprefix
    vgatherqpd zmm6{k1}, ZMMWORD PTR [zmm3+riz]
    vgatherqpd zmm6{k1}, ZMMWORD PTR [zmm3+rax]
[hjl@gnu-6 tmp]$ gcc -c sib.s
sib.s: Assembler messages:
sib.s:3: Error: `(%zmm2)' is not a valid base/index expression
sib.s:5: Error: `ZMMWORD PTR [zmm3+riz]' is not a valid base/index expression
[hjl@gnu-6 tmp]$
