ESXi CLI command to get Processor information

What is the ESXCLI command on ESXi 6.0 to get Processor information to include "Encoded CPUID Family, Model, Stepping" "Processor SKU Stepping" and "Microcode Revision"

I tried  vim-cmd hostsvc/hosthardware      did not help.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
