  • Start64!64-bit operating systems are popular like never before. Even though 64-bit software is available for some time, web browsers still try to adopt to the more powerful x64 computer architecture. A 64-bit web browser is a software that is capable to use a 64-bit architecture, supported by your processor and operating system. Which means it can process more memory out of your system if necessary.

  • Start64!If you’ve settled on, oh, Windows 8.1 as your operating system of choice, you aren’t off the hook yet. You need to decide whether you want the 32-bit flavor or the 64-bit flavor of Windows 8.1. (Similarly, Windows 8.1 Pro and Enterprise are available in a 32-bit model and a 64-bit model.)

  • Start64!For those curious about the performance advantages of using 64-bit Ubuntu Linux over 32-bit Ubuntu on a modern Intel laptop, here are 32-bit vs. 64-bit benchmarks of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS on the ASUS Zenbook Prime.

  • Start64!Various reports have indicated that Google may be discontinuing the Nexus 7 tablet line this year, in favor of a new 8-inch Nexus 8 tablet that could be launched alongside Android 4.5 at some point this summer. While this device and its launch are far from being confirmed by Google, AndroidPit speculates that the summer launch may have something to do with Intel’s release plans for a new mobile processor, suggesting that Google and Intel may partner up for this particular Nexus device.

  • Start64!Nvidia announced their latest Tegra applications processors at CES 2014 with the Tegra K1 32-bit and 64-bit ARM SoCs, as well as Tegra K1 MVC for automotive application. The 32-bit version comes with four Cortex A15 cores up to 2.3 GHz plus a companion core, and the 64-bit version with 2 ARMv8 cores (Cortex A53?) clocked up to 3 GHz.

  • Start64!Apple’s 64-bit processor debuted in the iPhone 5s last year, and was predictably ridiculed by the Android faithful, who secretly prayed to the great Google god: “Please Sir. Can we have some?”

  • Start64!At the end of February there was a big technology trade show, Mobile World Congress, in Barcelona. MWC attracted more than 70,000 visitors. It spanned mobile gadgets, electronic components, apps, and services--stuff for consumers, and stuff for the industry itself.

  • Start64!So the rush to 64-bit mobile processors has turned into a stampede. Apple started it with the A7 processor. Qualcomm and Intel have followed. But this charge begs a question: why the heck do you need with a 64-bit processor on a mobile device?

  • Start64!Yesterday I updated my Ghost installation on Azure Websites and my test blog stopped working: I enabled error logging and the error I got was:

  • Start64!I noticed that I could not find any game that has a native 64-bit version on the x86 platform (there are some for platforms, obviously for example the Nintendo 64). In fact when I asked if the Allegro library supported 64-bit, the developers had no idea. When I tried to compile something for 64-bit my compiler failed (it was MingW, it wrote that 64-bit is not implemented).

  • Start64!The stock Firefox browser, with that I mean the releases that are available for download on the Mozilla website directly, can be run on 32-bit and 64-bit Windows operating systems. While that is the case, it is a 32-bit application that Mozilla offers on its website.

  • Start64!While the Linux x32 ABI has been talked about since 2011 and there's been mainline Linux kernel support since 2012 and x32 support within other programs has trickled in, there still isn't any widespread interested in this ABI intended for use on 64-bit processors while using 32-bit pointers.

  • Start64!The Linux 3.12 kernel was released on Sunday evening but prior to that was a last-minute pull request that got rejected by Linus Torvalds and with it he reaffirmed the focus of Linux on 64-bit.

  • Start64!Summary: We've asked these sorts of questions before, but now we have (or are about to have) a new crop of even more capable hardware. ZDNet's David Gewirtz put it to the acid test: could either serve as his main computer?

  • Start64!The iPhone 5S uses a new Apple-designed A7 processor that has a 64-bit architecture. It runs a 64-bit version of iOS 7, which has 64-bit drivers. But why should anyone care about this? Does it really make it better than the 32-bit iPhone 5? Is the iPhone 5S twice as good? See: iPhone 5S vs iPhone 5C comparison review: what's the difference between iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C?

  • Start64!One of the key features Apple has been pushing in its new iPhone 5s is the appearance of a "64-bit" A7 mobile processor. Apple's smartphone doubles the number of CPU registers in its flagship smartphone, leaving the competition in the dust with their 32-bit handsets. Samsung has, however, been quick off the mark in announcing that it'll be following Apple down the road to 64 bits, with a similar chip in the pipeline. So what's all the fuss about?

  • Start64!The first reviews of Apple’s iPhone 5S are in, and the news is unilaterally positive. Unlike the iPhone 5 launch, which was badly overshadowed by the Apple Maps debacle, the iPhone 5S has no such problems. General coverage of everything from the new camera to iOS 7 is positive. The issues that people were concerned might be gimmicky, like the new fingerprint sensor, are receiving high praise. The camera, with its dual flash LED technology, is noted as taking better low-light photos than its predecessor.

  • Start64!The launch of Apple’s new iPhone 5S focused heavily on the handset’s new 64-bit A7 processor, with the company boasting that this new chip would offer “desktop-class architecture” to users and just days later rival phone-maker Samsung have jumped onto the 64-bit bandwagon and declared that they had plans to use similar chips in the future.

  • Start64!In an announcement that surprised absolutely nobody, Apple officially announced both the iPhone 5c and the flagship iPhone 5s today. The announcements were pretty underwhelming, leading to one video saying the S stands for "same," as in it's the same phone. Even Microsoft and Nokia were poking fun at Apple's new lineup via Twitter today.

  • Start64!Like many others on the East Coast, I spent my lunch hour going through the various computer industry liveblogs of Apple's iPhone 5C and 5S launch event. While many of the things we heard about both devices were covered extensively in various leaks and analysis in weeks prior, by far the most the most important new thing that was announced at the event was that the iPhone 5S uses a 64-bit ARM chip of Apple's own design, the A7.
