   11: NetBSD/amd64 is a port to the AMD64 family of processors; it
   12: supports CPUs that implement the 64-bit x86
   13: architecture. This covers all recent AMD and Intel models.
   14: 
   15: NetBSD/amd64 is a true 64bit operating system. Running
   16: 32-bit NetBSD/i386 binaries is supported as well; see
   17: [[!template id=man name="compat_netbsd32" section="8"]].
   18: 
   19: The port was first committed to the NetBSD source tree as NetBSD/x86_64
   20: on June 19th, 2001 and renamed to NetBSD/amd64 on April 26th, 2003.

   23: <a class="ulink" href="http://web.archive.org/web/2002/http://www.wasabisystems.com/" target="_top">Wasabi Systems</a>, assisted by
   24: <a class="ulink" href="http://www.amd.com/" target="_top">AMD</a>, who provided the simulator
   25: (Simics VirtuHammer), pre-release hardware and access to a range
   26: of Opteron hardware through the
   27: <a class="ulink" href="http://developer.amd.com/" target="_top">AMD Developer Center</a>.
   28: 
   29: The port is fully functional. It has been tested on single-CPU and
   30: multiprocessor (SMP) Opteron configurations. Since the <a class="ulink" href="http://www.NetBSD.org/releases/formal-2.0/NetBSD-2.0.html" target="_top">release of NetBSD 2.0</a>,
   31: it is a completely supported platform.
