There is a SIMD library that will eventually be proposed to Boost.

It contains among others means to detect whether a particular SIMD
extension is supported, all of it header-only.

You can re-use it or parts of it if you want, it's under the Boost
Software license.

 From a quick look, this library doesn't seem like it would work with
MSVC x64.
This actually fully parses the cpuid though.
