Announced today...
Sledgehammer= AMD Opteron
Clawhammer= AMD Athlon 8th Generation

(fyi, the "Hammer" family is AMD's 64-bit CPU to be released in October )

(and the 386,486, Pentium, II, III, 4 and Atlon are all 32-bit right now...)

I'm glad Microsoft is releasing a Hammer OS. This is just what the world needed - an x86-64 CPU - finally!
ken4kne - don't be so sure. I expect a large amount of support for x86-64. Even more interesting to me is the fact AMD is finally strong enough to use their own instruction set instead of following Intel. AMD RULEZ!!!!!
