Hardware CPU Detection?

SephirothSephiroth Fayetteville, NC, USAPosts: 1,035Member
How would I detect whether a user's processor is an AMD or an Intel? I ask because I am starting to learn the extras (MMX, SSE, and SSE2 now, and 3DNow later) and depending on what chip the user has, I'll know which instructions to test for.
