Intel also has their own 64-bit part to rival AMDs.
The same extra SSE registers exist in 64-bit mode.
They basically reverse engineered and AMD64 part to
make sure it was compatible. To make things confusing
they are calling their support EM64T. But most people
in the know call it AMD64 compatible.
