64 Bit is coming

Oh yes it is and I’d be jumping right in at lest I would if I could…

After a quick analysis of my hardware I’ve found it all to be compatible, NVIDIA has drivers for it’s Graphic cards and NForce Chipsets, Creative also as some beta drivers available but the TV card is not.

Not just that but DScaler, the application I use for my TV needs also uses built in drivers so it wont work as well.

I’ve sent an email Prolinks way to see what’s their position on 64bits but jugging by what other (better know) brands are doing I believe they’ll most likely ignore the subject.

So that’s my situation, I can move on to Windows 64 but I’d loose my TV and my 2 buttons on my gamepad (but that’s something I can live with).

With software, Daemon Tools would be the most important since it uses drivers but a beta version for 64bits is already being tested, also 7-Zip the most resource hungry application I use is planed to have a 64bit build in April after the Windows 64 release everything else should be compatible except win16 apps which I don’t use, but some installer still use win16 code so I’ll have to try and see. Almost forgot that there’s some other stuff that isn’t supported, but I’m not to worried about it.

In conclusion when Windows 64 comes out I’ll probably dual boot into it until the TV card situation is solved, in the end it’s better then nothing now if only there was a 64bit steam :p
