Is there a command to check the name and speed of the processor used in Linux?

I know there is uname, but it gives only the genre of processors( e.g. here it says : UTC 2004 i686 i686 i386  )....I'd like it to tell me exactly if it is pentium 3 or 4 or anything else, and what the processor speed etc. is .....is there any way to know?
