Almost a year after Intel made an U-turn on its 64-bits strategy by copying AMD's Opteron, the company is ready to launch a 32/64 bits processor for desktop computers. The company only in January 2004 was trashing need for 64 bits computing power for home users. But now the chip giant is a devoted follower of the 64 bits religion.
"We view 2005 as the year of 64-bit computing," Kirk Skaugen, general manager of Intel's enterprise platforms group told vnunet.com. "We're going to bring 64-bit aggressively to the PC."
