It seems that the Intel Core Duo processors that are all the rage these days may be a little more powerful than Intel would have you know. Thanks to a little detective work, it’s been discovered that the processors, deep down inside, are actually 64-bit compatible. Yes, that Core Duo you have right now is a 64-bit chip.
Wow, that’s interesting, especially on the apple side of things
an analyst meeting slated for Friday, Intel will be demonstrating a completely functional quad-core processor. This chip, named the Cloverton, isn’t expected to be on the market until late 2006—if not 2007.
that coencides perfectly with when apple claims their entire line up of computers will be updated with the Intel chips, making the Power Mac G5’s one of the last to be updated.
