The chipmaker will unveil its Athlon 64 processor on Tuesday. Along with added performance, the chip offers PC buyers the option of upgrading to 64-bit software–a feature Intel’s Pentium doesn’t offer.
My spin: 64bit computing is now here – on the desktop. However will consumers AND software makers bite? Is there a large enough industry – yet – for 64bit computing. Maybe INTEL and it’s partners won’t move yet, shutting out AMD?
