   10: NetBSD/amd64 is a port to the AMD64 family of processors; it
   11: supports CPUs that implement the 64-bit x86
   12: architecture. This covers all recent AMD and Intel models.
   14: NetBSD/amd64 is a true 64bit operating system. Running
   15: 32-bit NetBSD/i386 binaries is supported as well; see 
   16: [[!template id=man name="compat_netbsd32" section="8"]].
   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="" target="_top">release of NetBSD 2.0</a>,
   30: it is a completely supported platform.
