See the section "3.17.14 Intel 386 and AMD x86-64 Options" in the gcc
Info manual.  It contains a full list of the supported CPU-TYPE values
for the -mtune=CPU-TYPE option.  The -march=CPU-TYPE option accepts the
same CPU types:

         Generate instructions for the machine type CPU-TYPE.  The
         choices for CPU-TYPE are the same as for `-mtune'.  Moreover,
         specifying `-march=CPU-TYPE' implies `-mtune=CPU-TYPE'.
