Do we have seperate Web Sphere installer for AMD and Intel?

I have installed Web Sphere in my Intel 64 bit machine, Red Hat 64 OS. How ever if i go and check my Java version it is showing AMD 64 in that.


processor       : 3
vendor_id       : GenuineIntel
cpu family      : 6
model           : 15
model name      : Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU           E7330  @ 2.40GHz

java -version:

Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build pxa64devifx-20090811 (SR10 +IZ56666+IZ56751))
IBM J9 VM (build 2.3, J2RE 1.5.0 IBM J9 2.3 Linux amd64-64 j9vmxa6423-20090707 (JIT enabled)

How can it shows as amd64 in my Intel machine??

    Accepted Solution

    The x86_64 architecture was brought by AMD which later Intel also adopted. Hence the naming...amd64 works on normal 64 bit Intel processors but not Itanium ones
