If you seek documentation, try AMD's web site first. The burden of proof is on
them, not me. AMD makes no claim to have 64 bit cores; all of the manufacturers
avoid the phrase '64 bit processor' to refer to their chips. They put big spin
on techno-speak and tradenames like AMD64 which generically refer to achieving
64 bit functions using multiple core chips. They just can't do it with a single
core yet, but they would love to sell such a chip if they could.
Now with 16 AMD 2901's...
