comment How prevalent are old x64 processors lacking the cmpxchg16b instruction?
I don't think question this should have been migrated to superuser. It just ensures that fewer people who know the answer will ever see this question.

Yes, I know how to check the cpuid result. The issue is what to do if it is not supported. I would rather not waste time working around a missing instruction if I am never going to see that case in practice.
