Apple is still using 64-bit Processors

Several months ago I asked if Apple would continue to use widely advertised 64-bit processors after moving to Intel. Apple spent a lot of time/money telling people 64-bit was the future, and the G5 was perfect.

Even upon release of the first Intel Mac’s, it wasn’t clear if they were 64-bit or 32-bit. Supposedly they are 64-bit, but not very clear if they could ever run in 64-bit.

Regardless, very interesting.

    Apple and Intel aren’t advertising Yonah’s support for EM64T so they can tout it later and get everyone that bought an apparently 32-bit Intel Mac to ‘upgrade’ to a 64-bit machine.

    In other news, Apple caused 9/11.
