Methods for Platform Detection

Uses PCI VID and DID to detect processor and PCH

Processor: 0:0.0

PCH: Scans enumerated PCI Devices for corresponding VID/DID per configurations.

Chip information located in chipsec/

Currently requires VID of 0x8086 (Intel) or 0x1022 (AMD).

DID is used as the lookup key.

If there are matching DID, will fall back to cpuid check for CPU.

Platform Configuration Options

Select a specific platform using the –p flag.

Specify PCH using the –-pch flag.

~Ignore the platform specific registers using the -i flag.~ The -i flag has been depricated and should not be used.
