    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>.
   18: The port was first committed to the NetBSD source tree as NetBSD/x86_64
   19: on June 19th, 2001 and  renamed to NetBSD/amd64 on April 26th, 2003.
   21: The original work to do this port was done by Frank van der Linden at
   22: <a class="ulink" href="" target="_top">Wasabi Systems</a>, assisted by
   23: <a class="ulink" href="" target="_top">AMD</a>, who provided the simulator
   24: (Simics VirtuHammer), pre-release hardware and access to a range
   25: of Opteron hardware through the
   26: <a class="ulink" href="" target="_top">AMD Developer Center</a>.
   28: The port is fully functional. It has been tested on single-CPU and
   29: 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>,
   30: it is a completely supported platform.
