macOS download link for Vagrant indicates AMD64!?

Hoping over to the downloads page and selecting macOS I was surprised to see x86_64 binary marked as AMD64. As far as I am ware Apple has never used used an AMD CPU in their computers.

Am I missing something?

Hi there,

The amd64 used within the release artifacts are not referencing a specific processor. It is referencing the instruction set. The x86-64 instruction set was created by AMD and was later renamed amd64. It is common to see amd64, x86-64, and x64 used to describe the instruction set.
