Without specific references, all I can say is... "that's crap".

I'm running FreeBSD-CURRENT on an amd64 laptop for the past 3
months (ever since I managed to get a working laptop from Acer)
and I haven't had any mysterious 'crashes' because of the amd64

If you are looking for suggestions about motherboards and other
hardware that is supported, please have a look at the web-site
for the list of supported systems and all should be fine :)
