Been running Sarge for a year on a genuine AMD Opteron. Have Debian 
unstable on several Opterons, a dual Xeon and Pentium D. The Pentium D 
"feels" faster but may have a faster clock speed / dynamically faster 
memory / peripherals. Not been running these for very long at all - but 
no obvious problems.

AMD64 - no problem :) The caveat is what level of package churn you can
tolerate - unstable moves very quickly, testing less so, stable hardly 
at all. Pick one and stick with it :)
