> x86 is, x64 isn't.
x86-64 is one more execution mode on top of the horrible x86. If they made x64 circuits without x86 backward compatibility, maybe you would have a point.
With all due respect, this is poppycock. By that logic we shouldn't use PC video cards either, since they can still operate in a VGA compatible mode.
This is just like television, only you can see much further.
