    So you retract your previous statement that "the current buzz about this introduction is that it might be a 64bit processor"?


    No that reflects speculation I've heard from others.
    I would have to state that Nvidia would be foolish trying to market a 32bit processor in markets dominated by 64 bit processors.
    I wouldn't go as far as offering to eat one if it turns out to be 32bit, but I find the prospect of it being anything other than a 64bit design completely unliklely.

    Considering the trends in all other ISAs, do you doubt the prospect yourself?
