There are x86 versions of 9 and 10 (not sure about 8), but as the sun admin I used to work with liked to say, the hardware that's on the compatibility list is compatible, but not necessarily with each other.

Solaris 8 is pretty much SPARC only.

Solaris 10 runs on SPARC (Sun and Fujitsu) , AMD, and Intel systems.  For the AMD/Intel stuff, you can look on the Sun HCL page to see what has been qualified and reported-to-run:

More recently I know what HP said they would support Solaris x86 on their blade servers.  I think IBM said something similar.

There was an x86 version of Solaris 8.

Solaris 10 is an officially support OS on the IBM HS20 Bladecenter.
