Looking for x64 Intel Hardware

I'm looking for a source and ideally a recommendation for x64 Intel processor maker boards, i.e. a 64 bit Intel Processor based Raspberry Pi with at least 4 cores / threads.

I've had a look around but most of the ones I see use an ARM processor, so not what I want.

Is there even such a thing?

Aren't all Raspberry's ARM CPU's?

Re: Looking for x64 Intel Hardware

@VileReynard - Yes, yes they are and that's the problem I don't want to have to re-write my assembler code for another chip set. But having said that they're still not man enough for the task as my cluster of these has proven. I maybe should have said "i.e. a 64 bit Intel Processor based board similar to the RPi in form factor".

I have seen these and they look promising, but aren't available yet.

@w23 - Thanks for that but the jaguar board appears to be x86 not x64 and like to UDOO the UP isn't available yet. I was needing something now.

Re: Looking for x64 Intel Hardware

Wasn't sure if it was just the wording of the article on the Jaguar since the Atom Z3735G is a 64 bit capable processor.

 

I have to ask (for curiosity), why do you require 64bit on a platform that's (presumably) unlikely to ever need more than 32 bit address space?

Re: Looking for x64 Intel Hardware

That's interesting regarding the architecture of the processor, I shall have a read. As regards the requirement for 64 bit it has nothing to do with the size of addressable memory in this instance.

Re: Looking for x64 Intel Hardware

Fix

Having looked around there was nothing that I could see that could meet my grunt requirements so I've bitten the proverbial and ordered the bits to build a mini cluster of my own using Asus Socket 1151 Motherboards and Intel's i7-6700K Processors.
