"This is very confusing naming, but AMD64 (used to be called X86-64) as an instruction set standard is also being implemented by Intel 64-bit processors (except for the Itanium line of server CPUs, those use IA64).

So, yes, you can run it on Intel, too.

Check out the Wikipedia page for more details (including a list of supported processors)"
