It already has in many respects, but if there was any doubt that we're living in a 64-bit world, Microsoft is hammering the message home by ending 32-bit releases for OEMs starting this month.

Soon everything about the new Nvidia Ampere architecture will become clear, and you can watch CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang, dish all the GPU details at the GTC keynote right here.
