64-bit vs 32-bit processors, and other items on the Web
A reader of MacOS Rumors (August 10) wrote in with a good clarifying article on 64-bit Vs 32--bit processors, mentioning most importantly about the PowerPC architecture Vs x86 by Intel that when it comes time to jump to 64-bit computing the PowerPC G5 (which is 64-bit based) can also run code in a 32-bit mode. This means that the migration to 64-bit will be nice on our wallets as we are allowed to run our older 32-bit software on new G5 hardware...when that happens someday ; )
Silicon Graphics has introduced a new Value-Rich Silicon Graphics O2+ Visual Workstation, for those IRIX users in the audience. The news was announced at the Siggraph show. The new O2+ Visual Workstations come with two processor options.
Be sure to visit our CADWire.net friends. They have been doing an excellent job of covering our Mac-related CAD and, more and more often, our 3D news as well. Our recent MacDraft 5 review and Exclusive interview with Nemetschek CTO, Sean Flaherty, on the future of VectorWorks for Mac OS X is featured on their site.
