Assuming you have a valid Linux installation which has the Linux source code (well, at least the headers) then you can see the complete list of supported CPUs using the ls command like so:

$ ls -1 /usr/src/linux-headers-4.15.0-20/arch
alpha
arc
arm
arm64
blackfin
c6x
cris
frv
h8300
hexagon
ia64
Kconfig   <-- not a CPU (obviously?)
m32r
m68k
metag
microblaze
mips
mn10300
nios2
openrisc
parisc
powerpc
riscv
s390
score
sh
sparc
tile
um
unicore32
x86
xtensa

Tweak the version as required, or use an asterisk:

$ ls -1 /usr/src/linux-headers-*/arch

Just note that with an asterisk you may get multiple copies of the list, one per version installed on your system.

http://cdn.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/ link has the change log for each kernel. Once you download the kernel you could also look into arch/ folder to see the list of processors supported.
