I'm sure there is a painfully obvious answer to this question, but the synapses just aren't connecting this morning. I currently own an Ahtlon 1.2GHz and I would like to find a reference detailing all of the instructions that are available on that processor along with a description of the functionality of each instruction. I'm sure that I could use an Intel reference manual, but from looking over the AMD site, it appears that there are extensions to the processor which obviously would not be covered by a competitors documentation. I'm sure this documentation has to exist, but I'm at a loss. So, where do I find a complete instruction set reference manual for the processor mentioned above?

Thanks in advance,
Kevin

From my undersatnding of what was posted he wants a manual with the entire x86 instruction set and any other instructions that are available for that cpu...we have plenty of similar instruction and building manuals around work but they are for motorolla 68332 and coldfire dsp's etc...
