Forecast for the Development of Computer Hardware and Software for 2001
Processors The most significant event is the appearance of two 64-bit processors (Intel and AMD) with different structures. In 2001, 64-bit processors still did not affect the market for processors…

What is Athlon 64?

First of all, it must be emphasized that in the AMD64 architecture, the main attention was paid to the issue of compatibility with 32-bit applications that are widespread now. The new processors are fully compatible with 32-bit (generally speaking, even with 16-bit) applications. Compatibility is achieved due to the fact that the AMD64 architecture is an extension of the x86 architecture. The registers existing in the x86 architecture are expanded to 64 bits, while the lower 32 bits of each register can be used by 32 bit applications in the same way as in the x86 architecture: Continue reading
