Just go to cdimage.debian.org and click the FAQ link then hit the FAQ
entry on "Where are the images for AMD64, Hurd or other architectures?"
and you will get a link to:

IA64 is itanium, which is the intel/HP somewhat HPPA like design that is
nothing like x86.  amd64 is AMD's 64bit extension of x86 and is hence
very much like x86 just improved a bit in features.

IA32 is i386/x86 (intel invention)
IA64 is itanium (intel invention)
X86_64/AMD64 is x86 with 64bit extensions (AMD invention)
