Funtoo Linux Sub-Architectures
This page provides an overview of Funtoo Linux sub-architectures (also called subarches) designed for quick and easy reference. Funtoo Linux provides optimized installation images for all sub-architectures listed below. See the Funtoo Linux Installation Guide to install Funtoo Linux.
The cpuid application can be used to help identify your processor and it's microarchitecture.
sudo emerge cpuid; cpuid | tail -n 1
|64-bit AMD Processors|
|amd64-bulldozer||The amd64-bulldozer subarch supports the AMD bulldozer microarchitecture CPUs, which were released from late 2011 through the first quarter of 2012 as a replacement for K10 microarchitecture CPUs.|
|amd64-jaguar||AMD jaguar microarchitecture debuted in mid-2013 and is targeted at low-power devices, including notebooks, tablets and small form-factor desktops and servers. It is perhaps most well-known for being the microarchitecture used for the Playstation 4 and Xbox One,|
|amd64-k10||The amd64-k10 subarch provides support for the AMD Family 10h processors, which were released in late 2007 as a successor to the AMD K8 series processors.|
|amd64-piledriver||The amd64-piledriver subarch supports the AMD Piledriver microarchitecture produced by AMD from mid-2012 through 2015, which is the successor to the AMD bulldozer microarchitecture.|
|amd64-steamroller||The amd64-steamroller subarch supports the AMD steamroller microarchitecture, produced from early 2014. It is the successor to the AMD Piledriver microarchitecture.|
|64-bit Intel Processors|
|atom_64||The atom_64 sub-architecture supports 64-bit capable Intel Atom CPUs.|
|core2_64||The core2_64 subarch supports 64-bit-capable processors based on the Core microarchitecture and all processors of the Penryn microarchitecture. This includes all Intel Core 2 branded processors, some Celeron, some Pentium and some Xeon branded processors.|
|corei7||The corei7 subarch supports the Nehalem, Westmere, Sandy Bridge, Ivy Bridge, and Haswell microarchitecture-based Intel Pentium/Celeron, Intel Core i3, i5, i7 and Xeon Processors.|
