ESRI multi-core and 64-bit processors

arcgisx.jpgRob Elkins writes that he’s liking the sound of these new fancy processors, but I have to ask when is ESRI going to start supporting them with ArcGIS?

Of course the big rumor at the UC was that ESRI was totally rewriting ArcGIS at version 10.0 so maybe this new architecture takes advantage of multi-core and 64-bit. Don’t bother contacting your ESRI rep as I’m sure this is probably 2 years away. In the meantime I guess we can just use Manifold right? (had to get that in before someone commented about it).
