Dpkg architecture

I noticed dpkg reporting architecture as AMD64, but the h/w is Intel, see below:

~$ uname -a
Linux XXX 3.2.0-29-generic #46-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jul 27 17:03:23 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
~$ lshw | grep -i xeon
WARNING: you should run this program as super-user.
PCI (sysfs)  
          product: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2609 0 @ 2.40GHz
~$ dpkg --print-architecture
~$ dpkg --print-foreign-architectures

Is there any problem with this system? Please advise.

It's got nothing to do with your brand of processor. "amd64" code runs great on both Intel and AMD now, but AMD invented 64-bit x86, and the name stuck. Intel had to reverse-engineer and clone it.

x86_64, which some call it these days, is also the same thing.

Technically there are some differences between AMD64 and Intel64 but most compilers avoid the issue.
