i7 6900K cpu +WIn10- which Ubuntu .iso to install


Hi
A bit confused which ISO from the following I should download to create a USB boot disk
http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-mat....04.1/release/

Pretty sure I am 64bit but the first option only suggests AMD processors.

Should I be using the second ISO
32-bit PC (i386) desktop image
?
Thanks in advance!

You should choose "amd64". The name is confusing. This architecture is for Intel processors too, not just AMD.
