Since then, Apple has been working with developers to optimize apps for 64-bit computing
. In January, Apple mandated that all new apps submitted for review should be 64-bit compatible.
When asked to rank which upcoming technologies will have the greatest impact on the development community at large, respondents ranked mobile applications first (56%), 64-bit computing
second (50%) and parallel programming third (47%).
In particular, the mainstream availability of 64-bit computing
has significantly increased the amount of memory a computer can use.
Capability: Matlab 7.2 is now available for the 64-bit computing
The AMD Opteron processor is designed to power server and workstation solutions, incorporates Direct Connect Architecture and offers simultaneous 32 and 64-bit computing
. AMD said its venture with Supermicro provides greater access to a wider market for its servers and enables resellers and integrators to offer Opteron processor-based servers to meet small and medium-size business demand for x86 platforms.
Although there are many technical trends that are driving changes to storage in the studio such as higher resolution formats, faster networks, and 64-bit computing
, the primary driver of growing storage requirements in entertainment are the creative trends.
"In the recent past Intel has been out-innovated by both AMD, with a better approach to 64-bit computing
, and by IBM, with a better long term strategy around multi-core chips," says Gary Barnett, research director at analyst firm Ovum.
Analysis and simulation are likely to be among the first beneficiaries of 64-bit computing
. John Buchowski, director of product management at PTC, says that the memory limitations of 32-bit has required simplified models, which takes expertise to produce.
Tiger Server brings the power of 64-bit computing
to mainstream servers.
"Working closely with companies such as Panasas, AMD has set the standard for x86-based 64-bit computing
in the HPC environment -- first with the introduction in 2003 of the AMD Opteron processor -- the first simultaneous x86 32- and 64-bit processor, and now two years later with Dual-Core AMD Opteron processors," said Pat Patla, director, server/workstation marketing, Microprocessor Solutions Sector, AMD.
AMD's key OEM customers, including Sun, HP and IBM, showcased ground-breaking, dual-core platforms based on the non-disruptive AMD64 technology, the world's leading x86, 64-bit computing
The 7426GX fuses 64-bit computing
, dedicated graphics and an ultrabright display to provide desktop-class performance in a mobile form factor.
"The combination of our AMD Opteron processors with Direct Connect Architecture and NVIDIA nForce Professional provides the performance, scalability, and features to handle today's most demanding professional graphic accelerators as well as server I/O cards in both 32-bit and 64-bit computing
"We will be using the Sun Java Workstation W2100z on AMD Opteron processors for research on robotics, security, digital mapping and any projects requiring 64-bit computing
," said David Livingston, associate director of computer science research, Carnegie Mellon University.
It also utilizes a 64-bit computing
architecture for fast processing and supports Linux, an open source operating system that offers significant cost savings benefits.
