    Intel i5-2520M Processor compatibility

      I just received a brand new Thinkpad with i5 processor. If I got this right this processor is based on the Intel 64 architecture. Certain applications claim that they can run only on x86 based systems so I was wondering if this processor is backward compatible. Is 'Intel 64 architecture' a superset of x86. Can I still run those applications?
