    We can finally have something like CPU-z on Linux.
    Great job, thanks Google!
    But... we have that already?!

          I wonder if this was part of the Android SDK earlier? I remember seeing some header/C file called cpu-feature in there at some point.

            There is none, there are hundreds of these on github already. What could be actually useful is if google tried to push single version of this as compiler builtins for gcc, clang and msvc. GCC already has__builtin_cpu_supports("mmx"), but it's still pretty useless since other compilers don't implement it or implement it differently.

              What makes you think it's Windows-only?
