Anyone know if intel plans on going to 64 bit processors soon for their pentium chip or any other desktop computer other than their xeon

More about : intel bit

The 6XX range of intel processors is 64 bit i think

Here's a short list of Intel 64-bit CPUs:
Celeron D 326
Celeron D 331
Celeron D 336
Celeron D 341
Celeron D 346
Celeron D 351
Pentium 4"E" 521
Pentium 4"E" 531
Pentium 4"E" 541
Pentium 4"E" 551
Pentium 4"E" 561
Pentium 4"E" 571
Pentium 4"E" 630
Pentium 4"E" 640
Pentium 4"E" 650
Pentium 4"E" 660
Pentium 4"E" 670
Pentium 4 EE 3.72GHz
And all Pentium Ds

Intel went 64-bit like... 15 years? ago...

Just as an aside to the topic, WTF is with intel's naming convention? I read the charts and THG's explination of it and it doesn't make a lick of sense... guess I should expect nothing less from Intel. At least AMD hasn't given in to this numerical feature description naming. BAH! DOWN with Intel 9xx lol :p 

Also 64-bit, as I understand it now, does not give you a real performance boost at all. Further, the compelete lack of true 64-bit apps, and drivers to an extent, makes it less worthwhile to change over to 64 bit now, unless you want to have bragging rights among friends :D

Yeah ur right 64bit CPU is useless, unless you have a 64bit operating system, 64bit applications/ programs that support 64bit. Its been long time when intel release their 64bit products..

The funny thing is, 64 bit itself has been around for quite a while now. One would think we would have totally migrated to 64 bit by now.

Nah. People don't change until it hurts significantly more not to change than it does to change.

Since 16-bit was a pretty serious limitation, it got painful.

But 32-bit isn't so bad really. It's mostly when you start getting into things like memory addressing that you want more. So eventually it'll be painful enough to remain in 32-bit land that the move to 64-bits will become serious.

And then it'll be hella-long before a move to 128-bit because, honestly, how many people would really need it?

64-bit is no revolution. You should ask yourself: Anyone know if Intel plans on going to INTEGRATED MEMORY CONTROLLER soon for their pentium chip.

No because they need something for their old fabs to do while their newest fabs are producing their newest procs and it makes them money.
