    Hello,

    Not really sure where to post this but just a quick question.

    Does anyone know what was the first 64 Bit processor?

    The earliest ive seen is the R4000 back in 91', but im not completly sure!

    Does anyone happen to know of any before?

    Thanks in advance

    BS

    The MIPS R4000 appears to have been released in 1992, the same year the DEC Alpha was, although it seems the R4000 came first. As far as I can tell, the R4000 was the first 64bit processor.
