Is AMD going to x86 instead of staying x64? Why? - Page 2

post #11 of 74
Bulldozer is actually rumored to have 128bit OS's supported later on in its releases. I read that windows 8 will have a partially functioning 128bit version. windows 9 will be fully 128bit ready. I saw that windows 8 will also only be 64bit. So any CPU that isn't 64bit won't be supported.

IA128 is different from X86-64 or X86-128.
IA64 was not compatible with X86 applications.
Source seems kind of bugged.

i wasn't say that it was hard set in stone correct, just showing what I read. I took it with a grain of salt.

What's the benefit of a 128-bit OS? Quad-precision Floating Point is rare even in HPCs and non-existent in desktop use.

You can't be partially functioning 128-bit. You either are or are not.
