Yes, but that would just be an Intel clone.

Alpha folks, should this be changed to 'Compaq Alpha' or even just
<![ %i386 [ <!entity arch-title "Intel x86" > ]]>

FYI, this is SPARC and not Sun SPARC since SPARC is a standard
from SPARC, International. Likewise, PowerPC is a standard,
and not owned by any company.
Intel owns their chip architecture. x86 clones are still Intel
clones. Thus I think 'Intel x86' is proper.
