The name of package mentioned here (AMD64) refers to 64 bit version which can be installed in Intel architecture.

Here is what wikipedia says:

Prior to launch, “x86-64” and “x86_64” were used to refer to the
instruction set. Upon release, AMD named it AMD64.[3] Intel initially
used the names IA-32e and EM64T before finally settling on Intel 64
for their implementation. Some in the industry, including
Apple[4][5][6], use x86-64 and x86_64, while others, notably Sun
Microsystems[7] (now Oracle Corporation) and Microsoft,[8] use x64
while the BSD family of OSs and the Debian[9] Linux distribution use
AMD64.

I think that's the only 64 bit downlload, regardless of your processor type. In fact, I'm using the zmd64 version, even though my computer has an Intel CPU.
