AMD 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. Piledriver CPUs and APUs are available that use the FM2 socket. Piledriver CPUs use the AM3+ socket.

Desktop piledriver CPU and APUs include Vishera (FX-8350, FX-8370), Trinity A-series APUs (A6-5400K, A10-5800K) and Richland A-series APUs.

Server piledriver CPUs include Delhi (Opteron 3300-series), Seoul (Opteron 4300-series) and Abu Dhabi (Opteron 6300-series). More information here.

Piledriver adds several new instructions over bulldozer, so AMD bulldozer systems cannot run amd64-piledriver-optimized stages. However, subarch is instruction-compatible with its successor, the AMD steamroller microarchitecture, so amd64-piledriver stages can run on amd64-steamroller systems, and vice versa.
