People forget very easily that there was a
64bit copy of Windows NT4</a>. it was for the
processor</a>, by Digital, who where then
bought by Compaq who where bought by
or Compaq, or even
Digital for that matter, who sold something
of the Alpha</p>
processor</a> to Intel. I think
Compaq up until last year, or so, still had
Compaq systems. I know there was talk of the
killing the chip all together, but not sure if it went along with it. Pity. It
was a great chip. it ran at 533Mhz, when Intel‘s
fastest was about 300Mhz. Look at them now. running at about 1.2Gz, or
completely stoped even, and Intel‘s
fastest is about 3gz+.
