Heads up Apple, here comes 64-bit Android on Intel

Apple’s A7 chips will feel some 64-bit heat from Intel and Android next year.

Intel is readying a 64-bit Bay Trail Atom platform for Android, according to Hermann Eul, Intel’s general manager, mobile and communications group, speaking at the company’s investor day on Thursday.

“It’s not only about Windows 64-bit, we’ve been talking about Android as well,” Eul said.

An assistant then proceeded to demo on stage “the first ever showing of a 64-bit kernel running on Bay Trail with Android.”
