INTEL RECOMMENDED CPU / MCP IDENTIFICATION CODE


The attached CPU / MCP identification assembly code will determine
which Intel microprocessor and Intel Math CoProcessor (if any) is
installed in the system. If an Intel486tm microprocessor has been
recognized, the program will determine if the CPU has a floating
point unit (Intel486 DX CPU, Intel487tm SX MCP) or not (Intel486
SX CPU). This code should be executed so the system can be configured
for a particular application, which may depend on the type of
microprocessor and math coprocessor installed in the system.


Encl: CPUID.ASM
CPUID.EXE

Intel486, Intel487, i486, i487 are trade marks of Intel Corporation

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
