No, Win64 is the exception. All other x86_64 targets support it, but
Microsoft decided to deprecate it.

Or maybe it's possible to build a custom x86_64-win64 compiler with that

In theory yes, but it's not recommended, because Microsoft does not
recommend it (not to mention that it isn't even remotely tested as much as
the normal Win64 target).
