I have an i7 6700 processor, and I have no idea how to find out what architecture it is (amd64, arm64, armel, armhf, i386, mips, mipsel, powerpc, ppc64el or s390x) in order to choose a matching Debian build. How do I find out? It wasn't listed on Intel's site nor could I find it in a Google search.

It seems like the information is indeed not easy to find — the architecture you're after is amd64. Comprehensive information on the different architectures supported in Debian is available on the Debian ports page.

You have Intels i7 brand processor and those are all x86_64 processors. You can find out this information for example by reading wikipedia article about core i7 and from article about x86_64.

The latter article states that x86_64 is also known as AMD64, so you should choose that architecture.
