I recommend integrating this content into the [[Metro]] main page. We are missing a basic introduction to Metro there - a defintion of what it is, etc.

The '''amd64-jaguar''' (also called AMD Family 16h) subarch supports the [[Wikipedia:Jaguar (microarchitecture)|AMD jaguar microarchitecture]], which 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 [[Wikipedia:Playstation 4|Playstation 4]] and [[Wikipedia:Xbox One|Xbox One]], which each use custom 8-core Jaguar APUs.

Basic introduction is not needed, the goal of the article is to dive deeper in the subject and this would add redundancy, those who read the article know what metro is. At worst I will put cross a reference (best practice : do cross references, do not repeat the text between articles). Metro is not a single article, it is a set of several articles (this one, the quick start guide, the data modules, used and whatever else added in the future) grouped with the category "Metro"and this what the [[Metro]] page refers to :)

Amd64-jaguar subarches use the MOVBE instruction which is not available on amd64-bulldozer, amd64-piledriver or amd64-steamroller. They are thus not instruction-compatible with any of these subarches.

However I agree with you, Metro need a bit more verbosity, I would make the [[Metro]] main page more verbose with a list of several sub pages dedicated to a particular subjects. This page is the common denominator of every other.

amd64-jaguar (Sub-architecture)

Note

This page describes a sub-architecture for Funtoo Linux, which is a particular set of optimizations that is used for a Funtoo Linux build.

The amd64-jaguar (also called AMD Family 16h) subarch supports the AMD jaguar microarchitecture, which 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, which each use custom 8-core Jaguar APUs. Socketed Jaguar APUs use the AM1 socket, and FT3 socket for mobile devices. G-series "system on a chip" (SoC) APUs are available for non-socketed devices such as tablets and embedded system boards.

Desktop Jaguar APUs include the Kabini A-series APUs and Temash E-series APUs, such as the Athlon 5150 and 5350 APUs, and Sempron 2650 and 3850.

Amd64-jaguar subarches use the MOVBE instruction which is not available on amd64-bulldozer, amd64-piledriver or amd64-steamroller. They are thus not instruction-compatible with any of these subarches.
