Thanks do much
The big difference between 32 bits and 64 bits application is the size of dababase it can handle: 32 bits limitation is 2-4GB, there is almost no limitation for 64bits application. The chipp become bigger and bigger, parasitites netlist grow in exponential. The old 32 bits can handle such big design anymore.mami_hacky said:why we should use 64 bits CPUs for our ( for example ) chip place and route process? I think high performance 32 bits CPU such as P4 or Athlon will be enough, those 64 bits CPUs are mainly produced for servers I think.
