The AMD Jaguar Family 16h is a low-power microarchitecture designed by AMD, and used in APUs succeeding the Bobcat Family microarchitecture in 2013 and being succeeded by AMD's Puma architecture in 2014. It is two-way superscalar and capable of out of order execution. It is used in AMD's Semi-Custom Business Unit as a design for custom processors and is used by AMD in four product families: Kabini aimed at notebooks and mini PCs, Temash aimed at tablets, Kyoto aimed at micro-servers, and the G-Series aimed at embedded applications. Both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One use chips based on the Jaguar microarchitecture, with more powerful GPUs than AMD sells in its own commercially available Jaguar APUs.[2]

Design[edit]

  • 32 KiB instruction + 32 KiB data L1 cache per core, L1 cache includes parity error detection
  • 16 way, 1-2 MiB unified L2 cache shared by two or four cores, L2 cache is protected from errors by the use of error correcting code
  • Out-of-order execution and Speculative execution
  • Integrated memory controller
  • Two-way integer execution
  • Two-way 128-bit wide floating-point and packed integer execution
  • Integer hardware divider
  • Consumer processors support 2 DDR3L DIMMs in one channel at frequencies up to 1600 MHz[3]
  • Server processors support 2 DDR3 DIMMS in one channel at frequencies up to 1600 MHz with ECC[4]
  • As a SoC (not just an APU) it integrates Fusion controller hub
  • Jaguar does not feature clustered multi-thread (CMT), meaning that execution resources are not shared between cores

Instruction set support[edit]

The Jaguar core has support for the following instruction sets and instructions: MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, SSSE3, SSE4a, SSE4.1, SSE4.2, AVX, F16C, CLMUL, AES, BMI1, MOVBE (Move Big-Endian instruction), XSAVE/XSAVEOPT, ABM (POPCNT/LZCNT), and AMD-V.[1]

Successor[edit]

There are two known successor microarchitectures to Jaguar. The first released, Puma was released in 2014 and targeting entry level notebooks and tablets.[23] A second successor was announced in 2017 as the APU of Microsoft's Project Scorpio revision to the Xbox One.[24] The Project Scorpio APU is described as a 'highly customized' derivative of the Jaguar microarchitecture, utilizing 8 cores clocked at 2.3GHz, though no further details have been released.
