  • x64 ABI: Intro to the Windows x64 calling convention

    Start64!I've become fascinated with x64 code recently, and have taken on a quest to learn about it. There's a fair amount of information on the net, but there isn't nearly as much for x64 as for x86 code. Some of the sources I've found were wishy-washy, too, since they were created before or shortly after the rules were agreed upon. I have found very little in the way of explaining the performance considerations that are not immediately apparent and would come as a surprise to x86 experts.

This issue is again being discussed at the last minute for the Ubuntu 12.04 LTS "Precise Pangolin" release due out next week.

  • The 64bit music production system change adventure

    Start64!My last music computer DAW has been running for a long time. And like everybody else I added bits and pieces, trials, bought software, hardware, tried free instruments and fx and twiddled around until everything ran in more or less perfect harmony to my need. Unfortunately a production system costs money – and, frankly, it really sums up through the years.

This latter required existing hardware 64-bit capabilities. In this article we would like to help those who wish to upgrade their existing 32-bit computers into 64-bit ones.
