When will they come out with a 256 bit OS or 1024 bit CPU? (61)

So how long do you think it will be before such technoloogy is widely availble to the public?
10 years? Maybe 25?

Apparently, before 2008: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Efficeon
...And no one noticed.

>>49 IPv6 uses 128-bit addresses. Each user will, it seems, get a bundle of addresses for own use that is at least as large as the whole IPv4 address space.

>>50 It's not about how many people are out there. It's about how many networked devices are out there.

a 256 bit processor would be amazing for AES encryption since the main step involves a 256 bit state matrix.

"256 bit" means that there are 256 numbers that a computer can read. most computers now can read up to 32 bit numbers, or numbers with 32 digits in them. there are also 64 bit computers, which can read 64 digits. for a better explanation, head over to Numberfile on youtube.

Nobody should need more than 640 bits.

Proof that if you are going to fail, you might as well fail superlatively.

if 10120 bits is enough for the whole universe, then it definitely should be enough for anyone.

This probably should have been posted to the tech board rather than here. Would it be possible for a moderator to move it?

this thread has been on this board for about 5.5 years. why move it now?
