General Development "For years, PC programmers used x86 assembly to write performance-critical code. However, 32-bit PCs are being replaced with 64-bit ones, and the underlying assembly code has changed. This white paper is an introduction to x64 assembly. No prior knowledge of x86 code is needed, although it makes the transition easier."

Yeah, too much legacy crap.
Just the register naming mess alone is enough to put you off.

Architectures without all that legacy are so much cleaner.
I enjoyed 68000 and Cell-SPU assembly a lot.
