So... what is it?
I think the earliest is the AMD Opteron (2003).
From a "earliest in each family" perspective, I think the answer is:
AMD: AMD Opteron (2003).
Intel: Intel Xeon (Nocona) (2004)
VIA: VIA Nano (2008)
Excluding Itanium (thank god), are there any other early x86 64bit CPUs
that I'm missing or any that we explicitly no longer support?
Not that I recall. We should support any x86-64 machine.
If there's one we don't work on, it's likely a bug.
