Hahah...oh man, you're funny.

If Core 2 Duo wasn't 32-bit and 64-bit, it wouldn't qualify for a x86-64 processor. There is no pure 64-bit processor, mainly because the market hasn't completely shifted over to 64-bit processing.

In my eyes, the core duos are technically 64-bit processors since each 32-bit processor is processing 32-bits of data from a different thread at one time (True parallel execution). (http://www.intel.com/products/proces..._discover2.htm) I guess Intel made dual core processors since they knew that most software will not be compatible or will have compatibility problems with a pure 64-bit processor like AMD.

AMD is not a pure 64-bit processor. It is a 32-bit and 64-bit processor. A true 64-bit processor is the Itanium.

Yeah well that's because years ago, Intel were blockheads who designed the Prescott and Smithfield while high. Now they're the stuff to have.

Haha, yeah but they also did the Galatin Core! I've seen that around in a new processor recently... and I cannot remember where...

Gallatin was in on of the P4 EEs. Gallatin was made for Xeons. But now that new xeons are out (woodcrest), the Xeons will kick AMD's Opterons. LK, if you can, get your hands on two Woodcrest Xeons 1333Mhz FSB based on the Core architecture. you can find them on the egg
