Check it I think it is going to require a special BIOS to enable the 64 bit features, its common knowedge that all prescotts have full X86-64 support and NX bits in them but the mainboard BIOS, and Intel's chicp packing technology limits what parts of the chip you can use, until a micro code update or BIOS update.

I see it that in a few years 64bit will be way more standard. It's a good and bad thing. Good because of performance but bad because of price (well for us Canadians anyway).

I have a 64bit AMD chip. A 3200+ at that.

Intel doesn't have 64bit Pentiums or Xeons yet.

Arn't xeons 64 bit? That's what I thought, I guess I'm wrong.
