If it's a regular desktop machine, then yes. It's called "AMD 64", because AMD were the first to develop that architecture. Intel's CPU's are AMD 64 compatible. See this for more info.

64-bit PC (AMD64) install/live DVD
Choose this to take full advantage of computers based on the AMD64 or EM64T architecture (e.g., Athlon64, Opteron, EM64T Xeon, Core 2). If you have a non-64-bit processor made by AMD, or if you need full support for 32-bit code, use the Intel x86 images instead."
