I don't think Intel would be the leader for this evolution. The idea
of a total breakaway non-x86 64bit chip is good, but for the same
reason the PC is hard to overthrown, most people are not going to
change to a 64bit processor for quite some time.
AMD's hybrid backward compatible 32bit/64bit implementation is more
likely to be the transitional leader in easing folks from 32bit to
When a sufficient critical mass of hybrid systems are in placed, then
I expect we would see people trying out pure 64bit systems with "PC"
architecture that becomes less and less like x86. After all, they've
already pretty much eliminated the ISA bus.
