Windows 8

UPDATE 12/2/2009: It has been discovered that the information once contained in this article is false! It was a lie based off of a convincing fake profile created by You can read all about it here: 128-Bit Kernel Support in Windows 8 and Windows 9: A Big, Fat Lie




  1. Its not a 128-bit processor in the sense that it doesn’t have 128-bit addressing or any 128-bit integer registers. What it DOES do is a new vector architecture that supports 128-bit (and, IIRC, 256-bit) SIMD. This is cool, but not that new, and it doesn’t make it a “128-bit processor.”

    IIRC Intel’s AVX architecture extensions support similar things, up to 256-bit SIMD. But again… this is not that new.

  2. w00t! Good work..

  3. So long as I don’t have to make 128-bit builds of my apps, and worry about 128-bit shell extensions and video codecs, I don’t mind. :)

    (Or, if I do, I hope x86 is killed off at the same time so there are still only two arcs to worry about instead of three. :) One would be nicer, though.)

    Of course, I imagine Adobe Reader and Flash will still be 32-bit by the time we’re using 1024-bit computing. Ahem!

  4. When Windows for quantum computers will be available??? I can’t wait! :-)

  5. yeah I saw this at the about a week ago, Intel and AMD, ugh, they just keep changing hardware to push people into buying more and more

  6. “Robert Morgan is working to get IA-128 working backwards with full binary compatibility on the existing IA-64 instructions in the hardware simulation to work for Windows 8 and definitely Windows 9.”

    Since IA-64 is Itanium, this is presumebly related to the Itanium family, possibly the “Poulson” or “Kittson” processors.

  7. Gizmodo just plagiarized this..
    There you go..

  8. Rhys: IA = Intel Architecture.

  9. @bluvg: IA-64 is the Intel Itanium. I work with these machines for a living, I know what I’m talking about. The 64-bit architecture most people use is x86_64, not IA64.

  10. Rhys, I work with them too. He’s not talking about Itanium here, and he’s not exactly very formal in his terminology. AMD has no Itanium counterpart.

  11. hey!! I am writing an article on WINDOWS 8.Can you people guide me about this confusion about 128-bit?

  12. Article writing is also a fun, if you be familiar with after that you can
    write otherwise it is complex to write.

  13. You actually make it appear really easy along with your presentation
    however I in finding this matter to be actually something that
    I feel I would by no means understand. It
    kind of feels too complex and extremely vast for me.

    I am taking a look forward to your next publish,
    I’ll attempt to get the dangle of it!

  14. What i do not realize is in reality how you’re now not actually much more neatly-appreciated than you may be right now. You are so intelligent. You already know thus significantly on the subject of this matter, produced me in my opinion believe it from so many various angles. Its like women and men don’t seem to be interested until it is something to accomplish with Girl gaga!

    Your personal stuffs nice. At all times handle it up!

  15. Thanks for sharing your thoughts about windows. Regards

  17. The next type of juicer is called a masticating juicer because it extracts juice using a repetitive pressing movements.
    It comes with several features such as the following:.
    Families probably want to consider a larger juicer.
