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

Yeah... I'm torn on this. I can see the advantage of 128-bit when when dealing with demanding single-threaded apps if they're natively 128-bit but... I just don't see that being a common situation that any body would be in. I mean, if it's programed to take advantage of 128-bit, then it'll probably be multi-threaded to take advantage of multiple cores/ hyper-threading.

And as wolf said, GPUs can do this already extremely well. I'm just not seeing the need for a 128 bit CPU.
