From the mandrake site.

Mandrakelinux 10.0 Official for AMD64 combines the strengths of the 10.0 distribution with the latest technology of AMD Athlon™64 and AMD Opteron processors. 10.0 Official for AMD64 is based on the PowerPack 10.0 with significant performance enhancements in all of the applications. AMD64 technology provides more efficient memory access and doubles the number and the size of processor registers. Furthermore, Mandrakelinux 10.0 Official for AMD64 provides perfect compatibility with 32-bit applications.
This is the ultimate product for power users who demand the highest performance!

Yep seen that lots of times BUT not what I asked. Thats the 'for AMD64' version. Will the normal Mandrake 10 version work OK? No guesses please.

It doesnt look as if it will - it doesnt show up on the hardware compatiability list for mandrake 10.
