Default If Intel had kept the old numbering system

Intel version numbers:
386 = 386
486 = 486
586 = Pentium
686 = Pentium II/III
786 = Pentium 4
886 = Core 2
986 = Intel i3/i5/i7

Bonus:
Windows version numbers:
v3 = Windows 3.x
v4 = Windows 9x
v5 = XP
v6 = Vista/7/8
(these are the version numbers reported at the command prompt)
