    9:     NetBSD/amd64 is a port to the AMD64 family of processors and
   10:     supports all other CPUs that implement the 64bit AMD64
   11:     architecture.  These currently include AMD Opteron, AMD Athlon64,
   12:     and Intel CPUs with the EM64T extension.
   14:     NetBSD/amd64 is a true 64bit operating system. Running
   15:     32bit NetBSD/i386 binaries is supported as well, see 
   16:     <a href="">compat_netbsd32(8)</a>. Running 32bit Linux emulations will
   17:     be available in the future, the setup will be similar to
   18:     the one described in <a href="">compat_svr4_32(8)</a>.
   20:     The port was first committed to the NetBSD source tree as NetBSD/x86_64
   21:     on June 19th, 2001 and  renamed to NetBSD/amd64 on April 26th, 2003.
   23:     The original work to do this port was done by Frank van der Linden at
   24:     <a class="ulink" href="" target="_top">Wasabi Systems</a>, assisted by
   25:     <a class="ulink" href="" target="_top">AMD</a>, who provided the simulator
   26:     (Simics VirtuHammer), pre-release hardware and access to a range
   27:     of Opteron hardware through the
   28:     <a class="ulink" href="" target="_top">AMD Developer Center</a>.
   30:     The port is fully functional. It has been tested on single-CPU and
   31:     multiprocessor (SMP) Opteron configurations. Since the <a class="ulink" href="../../releases/formal-2.0/NetBSD-2.0.html" target="_top">release of NetBSD 2.0</a>,
   32:     it is a completely supported platform.
   34:     Andrew Doran is the maintainer of NetBSD/amd64.
