I want to buy a notebook with Athlon 64 CPU. And I have an application for JVM 1.4.

If I install JRE1.4 into Athlon 64 CPU, is it still work? the performance will be up to 64 or still be 32bit?


Thanks.

hello,

the Athlon 64 is compatible to 32 bit software anyway, like a normal x86. You could install a 64 bit operating system, and then you should also use the JRE / JDK for an Athlon 64. Last time I checked the reviews for Win XP 64 it was not significally faster, though, and that's why I don't use it although I have an Athlon 64.
