Hardware techman wrote in with two interesting 64-bit computing news items:

AMD today marked the next frontier in computing, introducing the world’s first and only Windows-compatible 64-bit PC processor – the AMD Athlon 64 FX processor – and paving the way for a jaw-dropping PC experience. The AMD Athlon 64 FX processor delivers what no other PC processor can: the highest overall 32-bit performance for today’s demanding applications and the power of 64-bit computing for the next wave of software.

For mainstream desktop users, AMD unveiled the long-awaited AMD Athlon 64 processor, bringing the benefits of AMD64 technology to desktop and notebook users and delivering unprecedented application performance for consumers and businesses. The AMD Athlon 64 processor provides extraordinary 32-bit software application performance while allowing a simplified migration path to 64-bit applications.

Microsoft Corp. today announced the beta availability of a native 64-bit version of its Windows XP operating system designed to support 64-Bit Extended Systems, including platforms based on AMD64 technology from AMD. Microsoft made the announcement at AMD's launch of the AMD Athlon 64 processor in San Francisco. The updated 64-bit operating system, Windows XP 64-Bit Edition for 64-Bit Extended Systems, which will run natively on AMD Athlon 64 processor-powered desktops and AMD Opteron processor-powered workstations, provides the superior performance needed by consumers and business customers for the next generation of high-performance desktop computing.

We highlighted the benefits of the AMD 64-bit processor for CFD analysis in this article.
