Is it possible to obtain a reference of Model/Extended Model numbers for AMD processors?

For a piece of software I'm writing, which identifies processors and their supported features, I need to have a reference of AMD model numbers, extended model numbers, brand IDs, the lithography for each model, and suchlike. It was rather easy to find such information with Intel, but I'm having less luck with AMD.

Preferably in a layout such as this one (which is provided by Intel, but the best example I have): http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-architecture-and-processor-identification-with-cpuid-...

Does anyone know of a reference such as the one above, but for AMD processors?

Hello,

AMD's Documents about Bios and Kernel developing stuff contain such information, you may also refer to the

Kernel-Source of Linux which gives you such information by "cat /proc/cpuinfo".

I know how to get the information, I need a reference of what it means.

e.g. Model = 14h = Some Dual Core Processor

Well, there is some info you need - www.sandpile.org (the CPUID chapter).

That's what I've been using, but it doesn't really provide that much detail. Not on the same level as is provided by the aforementioned Intel docs.

Perhaps even AMD has no such a document, because this company is a way smaller than Intel (BTW, have tried to gather the similar info on Centaur/VIA CPUs? That's what I can name a black hole ). I suppose the only thing we, consumers, can do is just to dig the documents AMD has offered on its site, or to search a resources like the SandPile (BTW, have you visited this site - http://users.atw.hu/instlatx64/?). There is another way - to extract the data you need from the code of another programs, like CPU-Z, Sandra, AIDA64, etc .
