Can anybody inform me if the Opteron CPUs can comply with this spec ?
If yes is there anything that documents this ?
Thanks a lot.
I think the Opteron is the closest you're going to get to a 64-bit CISC CPU. There is no such thing as a true microencoded 64-bit CISC CPU but the Opteron's AMD64 is based on the CISC x86 instruction set.
So, it should bit the bill.
