I thought that "everything" mainstream supported PAE from the Pentium Pro on. That turns out not to be the case. Intel exception: the original Pentium M and variantsdid not.
I thought PAE came into being with Pentium IV (probably in the Xeons). Intel chipsets I saw for the P III didn't support more than 512 Mbytes.
AMD didn't support PAE until the Athlon (my AMD K6 has no PAE; my Athlon XP has PAE).
K6 is Pentium (pre Pentiun II). No surprise there.
VIA didn't support PAE until the C7.
