None of the Core Duo chips support EM64T. Are you perhaps confusing the
Pentium D with the Core Duo? Also, all Core Duo chips were mobile ones,
save for the Xeon ULV ("Sossaman"), which was for dual-socket servers
(short-lived though, as a couple of months later Woodcrest and friends
(Core 2-based) were released).
