      Hi Intel,

       

      Nothing's broke here, but I have a suggestion:

       

      Imho, the Intel Processor Identification Utility needs a couple additions. The utility download is here:
      https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/7838/Intel-Processor-Identification-Utility-Windows-Version

       

      It should identify: CMPXCHG16b, PrefetchW and LAHF/SAHF.

       

      I recently had a Windows 8.1 installation that would just reboot loop after about a minute. That was due to the Intel Prescott 630 not supporting CMPXCHG16b. This was not a problem is Windows 8.0, but is for Windows 8.1 (ditto Windows 10).

       

      Just a thought . . .

       

      Regards . . .
