I have a host with FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE (64 bit) installed.
How do I check the host's architecture ?
When I run: "uname -m"
the output is: "amd64"
When I run: "sysctl -a | less"
and search for: "CPU"
I see that:
"hw.model: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU            5140  @ 2.33GHz
...
hw.machine_arch: amd64"
So, is this host's architecture is:
Intel or AMD
I'm confused about it.
Can someone help ?
Thanks,
Eitan

Just like AMD made i686 processors.  What's the "I" stand for?

Intel came out with the 8086-686 class processors first, and AMD picked up that architecture. AMD came out with 64-bit architecture first so the platform is commonly referred to as amd64.

Does this help?
