    Determining 64 bit capability from processor ID?

    ngrube

      Hi,

       

      I am trying to figure out whether a Xeon processor is 64 bit capable.  I have used the dmidecode software to get the processor ID and other info as below.  I don't see "64" appearing anywhere, so I assume it is 32 bit only?  Can anyone confirm or deny this?

       

      Thanks very much in advance.

      Also, if this is helpful, it is running linux, and cat /proc/cpuinfo gives (for one processor):
