    I don’t see the point to a 128bit version, there’s barely any software or game releases that utilize 64 bit as is

  • Daddyrob2008

    no it will be 32 and 64 as like windows 7 according to windows 8 microsoft post

    Might be a possibility that they only release the 64 Bit version. but who knows that if 128 Bit games might be coming in future.
