    this is already covered here: http://forums.tweaktown.com/showthre...&threadid=1663

    like the article says, improved drivers would likely take care of the poor gaming performance, and keep in mind that XP 64 is still a BETA and not a final product.

    you did read the article, right?
    Epic was demonstrating UT 2004 64-bit at the release of the Athlon 64 last September, and by all reports the performance was amazing. Perhaps we will only see the promised advantage of 64-bit in games written or compiled for XP64. [b]As we have already said, it is too early to draw conclusions
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    Yea, games are heavily optimized, and so it makes perfect sense that they don't run well on 64 bit when they are optimized for 32 bit...

    64-bit software will provide a great boost in ALL applications. We've already seen great results in other areas, just gaming is lacking currently.

    Just give it time. I think one of the reasons for this Preview Edition of WinXP 64-bit is to get it out there and make manufacturers realize that is coming, to get them to get on the ball with 64 bit stuff.

    What really hillarious is some people are labeling 64 bit as a failure before it even enters the race. Its as if they think 32 bit was the end all for computers... ROFL... WTF

    so pretty much it's not worth getting 64 bit process at this time right? does unix / linux take advantage of the power at this time?

    Thats not at all true. The Athlon 64 procs all run 32 bit apps exceptionally well, at least on par with, and often better than the P4's :thumb: Plus their performance may get even better when the final XP 64-bit addition is released in combination with true 64 bit drivers, and software that is optimized for 64 bit :cheers:

    Yup I personally would dub it the fastest desktop processor you can buy right now, even when run in 32-bit.

    The way AMD's 64-bit CPU's are (and will be) taking off in both 32-bit and 62-bit arenas, they def are the fastest, and we havent even hit socket-939 and dual channel capability yet :wow: . You can almost hear Intel's executives slamming there foreheads on their desks... :laugh: . : peace2: Mista K6
