Subarch Description
Subarch Description
Intel64-skylake The intel64-skylake subarch specifically supports processors based on Intel's Skylake microarchitecture. Skylake desktop processors are branded as 6th Generation Intel Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 Processors.
Intel64-broadwell The intel64-broadwell subarch specifically supports processors based on Intel's Broadwell microarchitecture. Broadwell desktop processors are branded as ''5th Generation'' Intel Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 Processors.
Amd64-zen The amd64-zen subarch is optimized for AMD Ryzen and EPYC processors.
Amd64-excavator The amd64-excavator subarch supports the AMD excavator microarchitecture, produced from 2015. It is the successor to the AMD Steamroller microarchitecture and will be the last revision of the 'bulldozer' family of processors, and is succeeded by [[Amd64-zen|AMD Ryzen processors]].
Amd64-steamroller The amd64-steamroller subarch supports the AMD steamroller microarchitecture, produced from early 2014. It is the successor to the AMD Piledriver microarchitecture.
Intel64-haswell The intel64-haswell subarch specifically supports processors based on Intel's Haswell microarchitecture. Haswell desktop processors are branded as 4th Generation Intel Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 Processors.
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,
Intel64-silvermont Silvermont is a low-power Atom-based microarchitecture that includes Intel Bay Trail, Avoton and Rangeley 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.
Intel64-ivybridge The intel64-ivybridge subarch specifically supports processors based on Intel's Ivy Bridge microarchitecture and AVX instructions. These processors are branded as 3rd Generation Intel Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 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.
Intel64-sandybridge The intel64-sandybridge subarch specifically supports processors based on Intel's Sandy Bridge microarchitecture and AVX instructions. These processors are branded as 2nd Generation Intel Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 Processors.
Intel64-westmere Intel Westmere processors are updated first-generation Nehalem processors that included a die-shrink and additional AES and PCLMUL instructions.
Intel64-nehalem The intel64-nehalem subarch supports first-generation Intel Core processors: Nehalem microarchitecture-based Intel Pentium/Celeron, Intel Core i3, i5, i7 and Xeon Processors.
Atom 64 The atom_64 sub-architecture supports 64-bit capable Intel Atom CPUs.
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.
