the Opteron 64 bit approach is actually simpler to use for both new and legacy software then the 36 or 40 bit memory extentions that Intel is providing, and it performs better as well.
whose who have been around long enough to remember EMS memory on the 8088 machines will find the Intel PAE memory concept very familiar, and there is a GOOD reason why nobody uses EMS memory anymore
