about IA64 architecture?

Hi,

I have Intel Pentium Dual-Core CPU, and when I lunched the Intel Processor Identification Utility I got "Intel(R) 64 Architecture: Yes",

here is the screenshot:

really this appears strange to me, since the CPU is an Intel Pentium that is not Itanium,

so is that true that my cpu has IA64 architecture or no? thanks.

The T4400 is 64-bit "Intel(R)

The T4400 is 64-bit "Intel(R) 64" not IA64.

IA64 is Itanium (RISC), "Intel(R) 64" is the 64-bit extension of the IA32 (CIS).

I think the 45nm core (you have two) designates the "Pentium" core.
