Re: What are the limits of 64 bits?
what the heck are you talking about? 64 bit memory allows you to use more than 4GB of ram. You could do it in a half-assed fashion with 32 bits but there were tons of issues. true, you cannot use the full memory space of 64 bits. but you can use the full ADDRESS space. address space gives the processor more flexibility in loading dlls and allocating memory. one of the selling points for x64 was that massive searches could run faster. Additionally some motherboards support 24 GB of ram and this will continue to improve.
