Default Intel going 64bit?

With the apparent upcoming advantages of 64 bit computing, I'm surprised that I haven't heard anything about Intel creating a 64 bit cpu for home consumers. I think my friend told me that the Xeon server cpu is....but its also not compatible with windows.

I can't believe that Intel would be sleeping and letting AMD sweep the upcoming 64bit action. Do they have any plans for a mainstream consumer 64 bit cpu?

ur correct, the xeno processors are 64-bit.

intel believes that technology isn't ready for 64-bit computing as yet. there is no software for it, which is true. so they have no current intentions of going 64-bit in the near future.

well, 64-bit has really helped amd with the consumers . . .

i think it was more of a marketing ploy than it was a technological advancement in desktop cpus . . .

but its working out good for amd . . .

and intel, is trying for higher clock speeds, which is another marketing ploy

well, anyone know how long the full transition from 32-bit to 64-bit will be? i'm thinking at least another 4-5 years . . . then around 2020, we'll go into 128-bit

yea mayb another 4-5 years. but 128-bit computing, i don't it will be here by then. its over a decade we have been using 32-bit.
