In addition to speeding up processing a bit, wouldn't a 64-bit version double the maximum allowed RAM from 4GB to 8GB? If so, this could be quite important for researchers working with very large data sets.

Any thoughts on the outlook for a Windows-based 64-bit version of Stata? I heard recently that AMD is rolling at a 64-bit chip.

Stata for Macintosh and the G5

We've received many inquiries as to if and when we will provide support for
the G5 and/or offer a 64-bit version of Stata.  The simple answer is when the
tools are available for us to do so.

Our developer tools do not currently offer optimization support for the G5.
We have however investigated Apple's developer tools and saw little to no
gains when optimizing for the G5.  Stata already runs quite quickly due to
the faster processing speed of the G5 and its two floating-point units.

A 64-bit version will be forthcoming as soon as our developer tools allow us
to produce one.
