Intel EM64T - Page 2

post #11 of 18
64-bit is good to have today, im sure future games will have 64-bit support. Given its not as "widespread" as 32-bit still is, its capable of running 32-bit still. I dont see why your calling it pointless, when its not.

Edit: Ice-Cold it would be worth it IMO.. Can do all that Windows XP can, and likely will run faster or have more features with support for 64-bit.

I know that some games have a problem with x64. It may have been fixed but, Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory wouldn't run because of the copy protection. 32bit Applications can be emulated but drivers cannot, and the cd protection used a 32bit only driver and therfore would not run.

I didnt say it was pointless I said it was useless (as of now).
And I meant that for normal users.
And I also meant that about installing the os not the technology.
I know servers and such use 64bit.

ok, getting 64bit windows, maybe make double boot (normal and 64bit) or would this slow me down ?

Well obviously you'd need to allocate space for the OS and its acompanying software. It won't slow down your 32 bit Windows however there will be an OS loader menu when you turn on the machine which might slow down boot up.

You could do that, or you could partition a drive into like 2 parts, one for 32-bit one for 64-bit and then partition the rest for like music and video's ect (for storage on both copies) or something like that.

And Tweako, yeah maybe it is, but become more all around.. It pays off more.

what is this Intel EM64T? i have this on my procc but don't know what it is anyone have a idea? thnx
EM64T is Intel's version of the 64 bit Technology used in computers today. It stands for Extended Memory 64 Technology. As the name suggests it allows more memory to be address then usually can be done with a 32 bit processor and operating system. With Windows XP 64 Bit Edition the system is able to address up to 8GB of system memory if it is installed.

As for what the technology does, it adds instructions that allows the processor to process and execute 64 bit data without having to be a full 64 bit processor. The processors are still based on the IA-32 architecture not the IA-64 architecture but are able to execute the instructions and thus can understand the data.

Note: There was a thread on this a long time ago with me and a few more people who were experts in the field of 64 bit technology. In conclusion we came to the hypothesis that EM64T does indeed emulate 64 bit data using the extensions as all evidence pointed in that direction.
