FreeBSD/amd64 Project

BSD Daemon swinging a sledge hammer

This page contains information of the FreeBSD port to AMD's AMD64 and Intel® EM64T (Extended Memory 64-bit Technology) architecture. The AMD64 architecture was previously known as x86-64 or ``Hammer.'' The Intel EM64T architecture was previously known as IA-32e, Clackamas Technology (CT), and Yamhill.

The AMD Opteron™, AMD Athlon™ 64, AMD Turion™ 64 and newer AMD Sempron™ processors use the AMD64 architecture.


Currently FreeBSD/amd64 runs in 64-bit multiuser mode, in both Uniprocessor and Multiprocessor mode.

The AMD64 platform is currently a Tier 1 FreeBSD platform.
