Quote from: Vogtinator on April 14, 2017, 02:32:23 pmx64 is IA-64, I highly doubt that anyone of you has an Itanium system anywhere The term got popular when Microsoft used it incorrectly for AMD64 and Intel-64 compatible editons of Windows, but it's still wrong.
Quotex86 started out as a 16-bit instruction set for 16-bit processors (the 8086 and 8088 processors), then was extended to a 32-bit instruction set for 32-bit processors (80386 and 80486), and now has been extended to a 64-bit instruction set for 64-bit processors. It used to be written as 80x86 to reflect the changing value in the middle of the chip model numbers, but somewhere along the line the 80 in the front was dropped, leaving just x86.
