I ran this command lscpu on it and this came out:
root@loadmaster:/# lscpu Architecture: x86_64 CPU op-mode(s): 32-bit, 64-bit CPU(s): 2 Thread(s) per core: 1 Core(s) per socket: 2 CPU socket(s): 1 NUMA node(s): 1 Vendor ID: GenuineIntel CPU family: 6 Model: 15 Stepping: 6 CPU MHz: 1000.000 L1d cache: 32K L1i cache: 32K L2 cache: 2048K

No, your cpu is an intel.
But the 64 bit x86 architecture is called amd64, because amd was the first to extend x86 to 64bit.
Intel then followed this standard.
And also debian decided to call the 64bit x86 packages amd64.You must always face the curtain with a bow.

Could also be your video chips too. AMD also own what used to be the ATI graphics chipset brand - it could be you have a Radeon or similar video card, giving rise to you seeing the AMD logo/name from time to time.
I'm curious to learn which applications you couldn't run, though. I have an AMD machine with the new processors with video chip and cpu on the same die - and there's nothing I can't do with it that my intel atom before it could do. The only difference is that it's now significantly quicker, and it uses about the same power...Linux user #126863 - see http://linuxcounter.net/

It has nothing to do with video chips. It's only about the CPU.
In the early 2000s, Intel developed their 64 bit processor line, "Itanium". It was not compatible with their popular 32 bit processors (Pentium line). Ultimately, it was not very popular. Nevertheless, Debian supported this CPU and called this branch ia64 -- short for Intel Architecture 64 bit.
AMD, a rival CPU maker to Intel, developed their own 64 bit processor line, but this WAS compatible with Intel's popular 32 bit processors (Pentium line). This architecture goes by various names; the one used by Debian is amd64.
Because of the high popularity of the AMD 64 bit processors, Intel developed their own 64 bit processors compatible with the AMD processors. Intel sales of these processors would overtake AMD sales.
Your CPU is made by Intel, but it is compatible with the AMD 64 bit processor standard.Isaac Kuo, ICQ 29055726 or Yahoo mechdan

Problem with AMD its cant run some program, even you can;t run some script on that. Better to Get an Intel PC.
