no. i don't think there are any 48bit processors. we have been using 32-bit processing for years, and are going into 64-bit.

there is no 48-bit computing, and a true 64-bit application interface isnt possible even, as u can only get O/S as 64-bit compatible, though are backward compatible with 32-bit.

FX has double amount of integrated northbridge @ 128-Bit, so its obviously faster.
