The Guts: 128-Bits of Power

Good for us, bad for Microsoft: Robert Morgan, a Microsoft employee, shared a small but interesting detail about Windows 8's architecture: it'll be 128 bits. Morgan wrote: "128-bit architecture compatibility with the Windows 8 kernel and Windows 9 project plan." Windows 7 was available as 32 bits or 64 bits, the latter of which requires more RAM and are theoretically more powerful than 32-bit equivalents. A 128-bit version of Windows 8 would represent the next leap in performance.

If you notice that article they link to is from Oct. 10, 2009.

Don't think it was ever confirmed beyond a doubt about the 128 bit thing. Most were saying it was just an early rumor.
