The Athlon 64 chip from AMD is coming out toward the end of September, and software that takes full advantage of the chip won’t be that far behind. Microsoft will release desktop and server versions of the 64-bit Windows optimized for the chip in the fourth quarter of this year or the first quarter of 2004. The beta version of the operating system will become available in late Q3. Game developers will also be coming out with software tweaked for the chip. Epic Games, for example, will come out with a patch for the 32-bit version of “Unreal Tournament 2003” that will allow the game to take full advantage of the processor’s 64-bit capabilities.
