When will they come out with a 256 bit OS or 1024 bit CPU? (76)

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

Wow look how old this post is! It's almost been a decade is still getting pushed!
So how is that prediction going about the 128 bit pc may happen thing?

Risc-V looks promising on that front, with support for a 128bit address space. And as well as that it the ISA free and open which is always a plus.

I'd be more interested in a 128-qbit quantum computer.

There technically are 512 bit cpus but they arent rrally exciting.. the intel xeon phi, i think its only the floating point par that is 512 but so just numwber crunching for science

Consumer desktops and laptops are still being sold with 4 or 8 GB of RAM (every so often you see one with 12 GB of RAM these days) and neither Windows nor standard software has gotten bloated enough to render this insufficient. Meanwhile I use a computer with 32 GB of RAM and an 8 core processor in my laboratory for sequence alignment. Moore's law stopped working as advertised in 2005, so I expect that this state of affairs will continue until either a)quantum computing comes along and upsets things or b)technical progress in computers finally comes to a halt and information technology becomes another ossified industry that was once cutting edge, like cars or petrochemicals. The way things are looking now, I think that quantum computing will be developed the year after they figure out controlled nuclear fusion and world peace.

At this point even an 8 Qbit (or a full quantum byte) computer would be good. From what I heard the max they have achieved so far is something like 5 Qbits or some other odd number.

It doubles about every 10 years

1980 - 8 bit
1990 - 16 bit
