So, I was playing around with my new Atom system, and it seemed like modern CPUs have a lot of flags in cpuinfo. For example, the aforementioned Atom system:

brian@slylandro:~$ grep flags /proc/cpuinfo | head -1 | sed -e "s/.*: //" -e "s/ /\n/g" | wc -l
46

The most flags of any of my machines is my core 2 duo laptop (beating my core 2 extreme desktop by 1):

brian@syreen:~$ grep flags /proc/cpuinfo | head -1 | sed -e "s/.*: //" -e "s/ /\n/g" | wc -l
53

One of the guys on IRC had 55 on a Core 2 Duo P8600. Can any of you beat that? Presumably a Nehalem would be able to beat it, but nobody had one handy when we were checking.
