AMD shows the prototype of a 64 bit Windows with Opteron

AMD presented the prototype of a 64-bit Windows operating system on a server with AMD Opteron processors at the Comdex computer fair. A 64-bit Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS), the 64-bit Terminal Service and the 64-bit Microsoft Internet Explorer were used.

In addition, AMD showed how the current 32-bit Microsoft Office XP also runs under the new 64-bit Microsoft Windows operating system. The ability to exchange data between 32-bit and 64-bit applications was demonstrated.

Obviously, AMD is currently concentrating all its efforts on the upcoming server processor from the Clawhammer, which was designed more for the home computer unfortunately there is still no trace.
