That's a shade faster than before.

64-Bit Windows Coming in Octoberby Dave Murphy
Microsoft will release a 64-bit version of Windows along with 32-bit Windows XP on October 25th. In preparation for this, I expect to see the official release of Intel's 64-bit Itanium chip early next week. Some users will wonder why the hoopla; the main benefit of moving to 64-bit computing (chips and operating systems) is speed and improved memory utilization.
Current 32-bit operating systems (OSes) are limited to 4GB of memory without kludges. OS's that use 64-bit addressing can use up to over 18 Petabytes (over 18,000 TB) of memory.
My desktop PC already has 512MB (half a gigabyte) of RAM, and I"m looking forward to installing a new desktop unit this fall that measures its RAM in gigabytes. And I expect this will be the standard within two years.
The release of 64-bit Windows is good news for Intel, it will drive some tech heads over to the Itanium chip. AMD, Intel's major competitor, doesn't yet have a 64-bit CPU in its product lineup.
