Microsoft today announced that it’s releasing a 64-bit (x64) version of Windows 10 IoT Core Pro, a special flavor of the edition of Windows 10 designed for small Internet-connected devices that’s exclusively available to original equipment manufacturers (OEM).
A Raspberry Pi 3 with WiFi and Bluetooth LE has been spotted on an FCC site. Meanwhile, a MagPi cover advert says the Pi 3 advances to a 1.2GHz 64-bit SoC.
The Redstone update will definitely be an exciting release for Windows 10 users, and although Microsoft hasn’t publicly acknowledged it, the company has already dropped several hints that something major is in the works.
Broadcom Corporation (NASDAQ: BRCM), a global innovation leader in semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications, today announced the industry's first 64bit quad-core processor for high-end routers.

Padnews wrote a summary of the event, but in this post I’ll focus on Rockchip RK3368 hardware.
Android and Windows smartphone users will experience a new level of performance with Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 810 chip, set to go into devices later this year. But the company is teeing up an even faster and more power-efficient successor, the first chip based on its homegrown 64-bit architecture.
News about upcoming HTC handsets have become more frequent in the last couple of weeks, which is proof that the Taiwanese company plans to be very active on the smartphone market in the coming months.
Last summer we were telling you the low-cost chip maker was working towards a 64-bit chip that will bestow cheap Android tablets 4K video capabilities.
If there’s one trend surfacing this year in the mobile industry, it's the fact that 64-bit smartphones are popping out everywhere for as far the eyes can see. And with this flood comes a slew of side-effects with the most important one being the acute lowering of pricing.
HTC is focusing on the Desire smartphone lineup at CES 2015 and the Desire 320 has already been announced with a quad-core CPU, 5MP main camera and budget price. The Taiwanese company also rolled out the Desire 826, which is a lot more impressive than the one we already talked about.
Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 615 was announced back in February and represents the chip maker’s first octa-core SoC with integrated Cat.4 4G LTE.

The rumor mill has been going crazy with the Xiaomi gossip, giving us reason enough to believe that up to two new, low-cost Xiaomi devices are on their way to market. The first one is a super cheap device (allegedly, as cheap as $80), while the other, which is the topic of today's discussion, is the successor to the Redmi 1S.
With Google's introduction of 64-bit ABIs for Android, we need to make some minor updates to Version Codes we use to publish and filter app on Google Play. The current suggestion make the 64-bit ABI 1 higher than the 32-bit code, making the 64-bit the preferred.
At this point, it's a public secret that Qualcomm's upcoming 64-bit Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor will reign inside the biggest, baddest Android smartphones and tablets of 2015. If you aren't up to speed with what this beast is made of, you should have a quick look at its technological profile. No matter if you are from team NVIDIA, or team MediaTek, or team Intel, you are bound to end up impressed!
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor is the piece of 64-bit silicon we'll most likely encounter in the "almost flagship" smartphones that will appear on the market before the likes of Samsung, LG, HTC, and Sony are ready to present their most important offerings in the first half of 2015.
Qualcomm announced the 64-bit Snapdragon 810 all the way back in April and said that the chipset was planned for release in the first half of 2015. Last week, the clock speeds of the 810 were revealed; and, soon afterwards, it was rumored that both the Samsung Galaxy S6 and LG G4 could be delayed because of issues with the Qualcomm SoC. Now, Qualcomm is trying to calm fears, but it isn't doing so well.
