The story behind the x86_amd64 architecture

There are many  fascinating things to understand about processors and how computer architecture works. R3’s newest product, Conclave, abstracts away a lot of the work you’d otherwise have to do in understanding the CPU, but it’s essential to understand what’s happening under the hood. Let’s zoom out a little bit to get a better view of what x86 is.
