I think its too early for anyone to say this is true so although i doubt it will but we just cant be sure what will happen..... but bare in mind that it has been said that M$ want to phase out 32bit and move everyone to 64bit

I would like to take a stab in the dark here and say that it would most likely be 64bit & 128bit
128bit is not impossible

see the pattern??? 32bit + 32bit = 64bit..... 64bit + 64bit = 128bit

Edit: i hadnt spotted it befor but look at the site again top rite.... Published Oct 08 2009, 04:13 PM by pthurrott

I thank I can say without having to eat crow later that it will never happen.

As to 128 bit who if any are putting out 128 bit systems to the every day user.

Don't think it will be 128 bit, software hasn't caught up to 64bit yet.

Would hope we can move on past 32bit, but don't think Win8 will arrive without x32 compatibility.

Well i woudnt be so sure. 64-bit OS's have a high level of support for 32-bit programs, so i think they'll just make it 64-bit, to get ppl off the old standard.

i could see windows 8 dropping 32bit and being 64 bit only, but i think we will have to wait until 9 for 128 bit

Were they to drop all that compatibility crap, the x64 OS would run SO MUCH better.

~Lordbob
Agree 100%.

Too many people will complain if their x32 programs won't work :(

I'm ready to move on :)

i doubt seriosuly there will be either a 32 bit or 128 bit version of windows 8. MS will kill off 32 bit support and 8 is a great time to do it since reports indicate it's going to be entirely new, while it may support 128 bit in the code i wouldn't expect to see a 128 bit version available until windows 9. there just isn't really a need for 128 bit yet for the average consumer

I think that it is more likely to come out in just 64-bit flavour, but retaining support for 32-bit programs (a bit like the 64-bit versions of Vista and W7). 128-bit computing will probably come, but it's probably going to be some time in the future with the successor to W8 (or even the successor to that).

Though really, what is the advantage of 128 bits over 64 bits? The best advantage of 64 bit is the ability to us more than 4gb of RAM, and I don't see us needing more than 8gb really in a home computer for quite a long while into the future.

I think it is not only the 128-bit addresses, but also the floating point operations that could take advantage of it, besides other inner workings of the CPU. I leave it to other more hardware-proficient than me (I can't tell a AND from a NAND gate anymore...)
Now, how much memory is actually 2^128? I hope memory is about 2 bucks a Giga by then...

340,282,366,920,938,463,463,374,607,431,768,211,456 bytes
or
309,485,009,821,345,068,724,781,056 TB

Assuming you'd want to max out your memory at 2 gigs a GB, then you'll have to spend

$633,825,300,114,114,700,748,351,602,688
or, for the sake of gasping the number, 633.8 trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion dollars. =)

Agree that they will make only 64 bit OS, it should be the new standard.
Would be nice if they could get rid of the 32 bit support, I've read on several sites that it 'slows down' the OS.
How long did it take to get rid of the 16 bit support?
Or have the option for a 64 bit only OS.
Even though my Program Files x86 folder is pretty large.
