Nowadays more and more mobile devices are powered by 64-bit architecture, and using 64-bit Android* is a great way to gain access to that market. This article will introduce Android on Intel® 64-bit architecture and discuss its unique compatibilities, including technical details and performance gains for Android on Intel® Atom™ processor-based platforms.
CrystalCPUID is a CPU-diagnostics program. It helps to determine the types and properties of the processor(s) used in the system, as well as the actual clock rate. In case of certain CPU types it also offers some setting options. These all fall under the tuning category – manufacturers do not support this, so you can use this function only at your own risk.
The Intel Atom Bay Trail tablets have been out for a few months already, but none of the hardware vendors is providing 64-bit firmware builds for them, which means that you can't install any Linux distros.

Although the previous Intel Atom architecture was only 32-bit and had some hard limitations baked in it, the new one supports both 32-bit and the 64-bit extensions, just like Intel’s other chips, although for the very first versions of this architecture, the 64-bit extension seems to have been disabled (probably to save cost, and because the OS wouldn’t need it at the time anyway).
The Intel(R) Processor Identification Utility is provided by Intel Corporation to enable customers to identify the brand, features, package, intended frequencies and actual operating frequencies of their Intel microprocessor. Customers can also use the utility to discern whether or not an Intel processor is being operated above its Intel rated frequency.
Intel's recently released low-power Atom processor Bay Trail platform already offers hardware support for 64-bit addressing, plus on-chip acceleration of certain graphics and cryptography functions in double-precision. Bay Trail based tablets with Google Inc.'s (GOOG) popular Android mobile operating system are expected to start this holiday season at $150 USD.
Since the launch of Windows 8 over a year ago, any tablet devices that have used Microsoft's operating system have been restricted to the 32-bit version.
