Default Re: Windows 8 and 9 may support 128-bit architecture

It's not just bits of storage, bits of ram. It's data path width. Cpus are hitting speed limits, so now they are spawning more cores, 2, 4 6, 12... making the data paths wider will help a single crunch more data without a clock increase. Some things just don't gain much by dividing across cores.
