    Gallatin never supported 64 bit, and the first Prescott that did didn't come out until early 2005 (P4 EE 3.73). Even then they weren't in the commodity Prescotts until late summer.

      I stand corrected. I never built a machine with any P4 CPUs outside of dumpster dived boxes as AMD had better performance, had allot of fun OCing Tbird and Tbred cores.

        Weird. Conquistadors on Linux had a 64bit version before this as a launch option.

          You and me both. I still remember clearly my 2500+ running at 3200+ speeds. I don't remember the clock speeds exactly, but it was a nice boost for free.

            Completely wrong, here's the real news post:

            Valve has added support for the Steam overlay to support 64-bit Linux game titles.

            With today's Steam client update, the Linux version is now able to render the overlay over 64-bit games. Previously, only 32-bit versions of games had this feature.

            Other Linux changes in today's update include a fix for finding Steam client skins, a crash when looking at community images, the Linux Steam overlay not restoring the proper mouse cursor, and a resource leak leading to graphics corruption. This update also has Big Picture improvements and other general changes and fixes.

            More details on today's Steam update can be found via this bug report.

              I would love to see full 64bit / 32bit support, be it either win7 or Linux. I'm kind of disappointed the Linux client isn't 64bit to be honest because of driver issues. Why make a 64bit steambox that is still using a 32bit os? Idiots.
