Intel confirms existence of X86-64 Yamhill chip

A report on Investor's Business Daily has quoted an Intel representative as confirming the existence of an X86-64 chip. Such a processor would be similar to AMD's Athlon 64 family. The report quotes Intel representative Robert Manetta as saying it has "a working prototype of a 64-bit X86 design that it could bring to market when customers request it". To the best of our knowledge, if this remark is reported accurately, it is the first time Intel has publicly acknowledged the existence of an X86-64 alternative.
