    Why is apple touting "desktop class" cpu, when the phone only has 1gb of RAM? Only reason we need 64bit is to address more than 4GB of memory. Only thing I can think of is are they coming out with a 6GB of ram Super iPad? This seems like pure marketing BS. Am I missing something?

    I don't want to link to another forum here, do a search on the following:

    "Why 64-bit processors really matter for android"

    There is one site's view on the matter with included comments from NVIDIA.

    You can also search on "why 64bit is a big deal".

    It's not all or only about the memory limit.
