Straw poll :
What x86 extra instructions can your CPU do?

Myself, I am not in love with CISC or the kludge the x86 has become but the vast majority of CPUs used by people are x86. BOINC availability outside of x86 is limited, so that does not help.

So for clarity :
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X86

has these extra instructions

that can be found by

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CPUID
