    It's not scheduled to ship until the second half of this year, but yesterday Microsoft Corp. made a trial version of Windows XP 64-Bit Edition for 64-Bit Extended Systems -- meaning AMD's Opteron and Athlon 64, not Intel's Itanium processor -- available free. The pre-release software, which will expire in 360 days, is intended for workstation users who are either developing or evaluating 64-bit applications -- such as digital content creation, mechanical design, or scientific computing programs -- that benefit from large amounts of memory and floating-point performance. Athlon 64 and Opteron owners can go here to sign up for either a free CD (shipping and handling charges apply) or download of a 450MB ISO image to burn to a CD themselves.

    In other AMD64 news, value PC builder Northgate Innovations has signed the office supply chain Staples to carry an Athlon 64 3000+ desktop priced at $900 without monitor. The Northgate STCA6430NM comes with 512MB of DDR memory, a 120GB hard disk, DVD+RW drive, and 64MB Nvidia GeForce MX440 graphics card.
