The MSRs

Table 56-2 on page 1347 identifies the MSRs implemented in the Pentium® 4 and Pentium® M processors. Starting with the Pentium® 4, all MSRs in the table with shaded register names (and starting with “IA32_”) are defined as part of the IA32 architecture and, as such, are guaranteed to be implemented at the same MSR addresses in future IA32 processors.
