Intel says that Windows 8.1 tablets with the 64-bit SKU will begin to go on sale sometime in the first quarter of 2014 using the company's latest Atom processor.

The news came as part of a recent investor meeting at Intel. PC World reports that CEO Brian Krzanich stated that the 64-bit Windows 8.1 tablet products will use the new Bay Trail version of the low-powered Atom processor. That same chip will also be used inside tablets that will have a 64-bit version of Android, but they will be released sometime after the Windows 8.1 tablets.


The 64-bit version of Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1 have been far more popular for desktop and notebook devices than the 32-bit version. A recent update of the Steam hardware survey showed that over 66 percent of the users of Valve's game download service had either the 64-bit version of Windows 7 or 8 installed on their PCs.

Not another atom for Win 8 :angry: They're too slow for it. ULV Haswell has more horse power and higher prospect than this sluggish processor.

yes but also more costly. as an IT ihear time and time again clients complaining that (from their pov) they "dont need" all this "horsepower"...of course the also whine to no end when their programs take too long to finish a task or take ages to boot.

so in short what they're saying is that they already paid a few hundred dollars for a machine 5 or 8 years ago that used to work well back then and it "still turns on" so they shouldn't have to pay again.
