That's not how it works, see

Q: Is this port only for AMD 64-bit [[CPUs]]?

A: No. "AMD64" is the name chosen by AMD for their 64-bit extension to
the Intel x86 instruction set. Before release, it was called "x86-64"
or "x86_64", and some distributions still use these names. Intel refers
to its AMD64 implementation as "?Intel64" previously named "?EM64T".
The architecture is AMD64-compatible and Debian AMD64 will run on AMD
and Intel processors with 64-bit support. Because of the technology
paternity, Debian uses the name "AMD64".
