I think a lawsuit should be filed, because this isn't a 64-bit CPU.

Default Re: Intel does have a 64bit mainstream cpu

Intel® Extended Memory 64 Technology is one of a number of innovations being added to Intel's IA-32 Server/Workstation platforms in 2004. It represents a natural addition to Intel's IA-32 architecture, allowing platforms to access larger amounts of memory. Processors with Intel® EM64T will support 64-bit extended operating systems from Microsoft, Red Hat and SuSE. Processors running in legacy* mode remain fully compatible with today's existing 32-bit applications and operating systems.

It is still a 32-bit processor, so what this means is that Intel is violating the law on proper advertising.

No, it is just like a athlon. It is 32-bit but is capable of running 64-bit applications so it looks like amd cant say their the only 64-compatible windows.

No matter what Intel come out with, they suck. AMD pwns what they can EVER come out with.

Wrong again jack. It is a 32-bit processor. AMD Athlon 64 is a 64-bit processor. That's the primary difference.

But Intel advertises as EM P4(w.e). It is extended memory so it can still do 64-bit proccesing. Amd runs at 64-bit and can do 32-bit as intel is 32-bit and can run up to 64-bit? Something like that.

Is it advertised as a 64-bit processor? If it is Intel is violating advertising laws.
