AMD hammering out 64-bit advantages for Linux
Author: JT Smith
NewsFactor Network writes "When AMD made its demonstration before the public and press, the company included Hammer processors running 64-bit Linux and 32-bit Microsoft Windows operating systems side by side. Although the company didn't make any direct reference to the speed advantages that one OS might have over another, lest it lose sales opportunities for its 64-bit chip on either platform, the fact that the company laid out its demonstration with 64-bit Linux and 32-bit Windows tends to indicate where its preferences lie."
