Intel Names 64-Bit Extension Technology for Xeon

Article here:
http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1759,1545734,00.asp

This will be Intel's equivalent to the A64. It will run in either 32 or 64 bit mode.

Dell Inc., Hewlett-Packard Co. and IBM are likely to using the Intel chip.

A year late and a billion $ short. But it's pretty hard to make a dent in the Juggernaut even if they follow in behind by an entire YEAR!

Thanks danrok nice to know!

Perhaps they are naming their baby before it's born for a little publicity? What was it's name again?

I dunno about everybody else, but I really hope that Intel bring AMD64 mainstream. Although it won't let AMD keep their prices up, it WILL help in getting 64-bit out to the masses. One of the problems we've got right now is that we don't have a lot of 64-bit drivers. That is directly due to the fact that there aren't that many 64-bit systems out there.

I think Intel will catch up in short order. They already have 64 bit Itanic so I'm sure it's short order for them to add 64 bit compliant parts to Zeon. I was reading up a bit about the history of the M processor and if they can do what they did with that, it'll be hard to beat Intel once they get rolling. Seriously, how many people buy non-Centrino laptops nowadays?

In addition to all of the above, when Intel wants software makers to do something....

I can see two specific milestones here, Intel's chip and the release of ATI 64-bit drivers. Things will take off in a big way once these two are available.
