Actually, what it says is, "Intel's extensions, which
it first used in the Xeon and are called EM64T, are
compatible with AMD's extensions." I wouldn't infer
that to mean more than it says: Intel's _extensions_
are compatible AMD's _extensions_. A quick experiment
would tell. Because these same extensions exist in the
Xeon, by your reasoning, the AMD64 codebase should run
on a Xeon platform, nee?
