    Phoronix: Intel Contributes New "KCPUID" Utility For Linux To Reliably Report CPU Features

    Intel engineers have been working on a tool called kcpuid for showing the raw CPU features/capabilities of a processor under Linux. This utility will be part of the kernel source tree and is queued up now in tip's x86/misc branch, thereby making it material for Linux 5.13 barring any issues coming up...

      Great!
      Too bad AMD won't contribute info for their CPUs.

        They don't have to, the detection mechanism is identical, all they have to do is add info to the tool where they differ from intel

          Hopefully they can make a GUI frontend for it too like on Windows and Android there is the popular CPU-Z.
