" 2.1 amd64 ... * Intel Pentium(R) 4 Processor supporting Intel EM64T ("Prescott"). This is fabricated on 90nm process technology, uses FC-LGA775 package, and operates with 3.20F/3.40F/3.60F GHz and Intel 925X Express chipsets. The corresponding S-Spec numbers are SL7L9, SL7L8, SL7LA, SL7NZ, SL7PZ, and SL7PX. Note that processors marked as 5xx numbers do not support EM64T. " Yes, there are only two x's in the last sentence. Does that refer to another processor type?
