We all know that a 64-bit CPU raises the standards for any company and its devices and although such a goal seemed impossible to reach for a long while, there are a few exceptions worthy of our full attention. We are talking about the popular iPhone 5S, the world’s first 64-bit device, but the list promises to get bigger and bigger by each day, as we have seen a few days ago with Nexus Galaxy S5 as well. So you know that Samsung’s future flagship device will also offer us the amazing 64-bit processing technology, but what about Nvidia and Qualcomm? Do you know that they are working as well on introducing new 64-bit devices?
And now, Intel is making real efforts to join this list too. The latest official statements from an Intel investor event confirm the fact that the company is not preparing this amazing 64-bit processing technology exclusively for Windows, but they are also taking in consideration the possibility of bringing it over to Android.
But that’s a little harder to imagine, at least for us, at this point. The idea of having 64-bit Intel-powered Android tablets sounds though more than tempting, so we are more than willing to imagine that they will be much faster than ever. But Intel refuses to offer us any more details, only suggesting that it’s time to forget about the older 32-bit processors and embrace the new idea.
As for availability details, our source vanishes the mystery and it seems that it is already official the first 64-bit Bay Trail Atom devices which run on Windows will reach the market in Q1 of next year, while the new 64-bit Intel Android devices will become available no later than the first half of 2014.
