    It actually could be true. AMD talked about a 128-bit CPU a few years ago. The next major AMD release is due in 2011.

    You know, this might be AMD's comeback. Bring out something that at least in numbers is better and catch up to Intel. They cant push the MHZ numbers as well anymore, so lets add more cores, more cache and tata...more bits....apeal to your braging needs.

    humm dunno AMD was a huge hype with the Athlon series, at least the 3700 was a major hit here (portugal) every geek of the block had one xD (I still do, although I have a 4000+ hehe talk about bragging rights). They slipped and I didn't noticed (bought another AMD cpu though a triple-core) so maybe just pushing 128bits isn't going to cut it. I know people are mostly dumb and will buy whatever's shiniers and have bigger numbers and more useless features, but we are talking about BIG useless-ness here IMHO if nothing is optimized for 64 (read: a lot of versatile common-day solutions, needed by preety much everyone) why make 128?

    Could who have stated that 128bit instructions would take longer time than <128bit instructions please elaborate on the reason for this?
    I can see a few things;
    1) as pythonscript said it's really the data size that is 128 bit and not the whole thing
    2) bus widths being <128 bit making data transfer take more cycles.
    ...but those are not problems with 128bit instructions as such, it's just crappy impelmentation and support hardware.
    Also no matter what the gaming industry tries to shove up, more bits does not automatically make better games. | sed "s/bits/other tech stuff/"
    Don't peach linux. Melon it!

    32 bit needs to go away. It is a zombie that is holding everything back.

    Look who's talking! Aren't those boys at Microsoft the ones that don't even have full and complete 64bit support yet?

    As in "all my drivers work on my 64bit Vista in 64bit mode?"

    For the consumer 32bit will still be viable for a little longer but overall I doubt 128bit will be a viable option.
    Mainly the state of 64bit in the mainstream, most still have little to support for it.
    Microsoft has no mastery of 64bit thats for sure, as for linux bet it will be able to work well on 128bit soon enough.
    Sooner then the other OS's
