Because Intel copied the 64 bit instruction extensions developed by AMD so the
amd64 port of FreeBSD will run on a suitable Intel CPU, eg..
CPU: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz (3000.12-MHz K8-class CPU)
Origin = "GenuineIntel" Id = 0xf49 Stepping = 9
Running in full 64 bit is considerably less kludgy and tends to expose less
driver bugs than PAE :)
