Fluent for AMD64 confirmed
Reliable sources inside Fluent confirms that they're working on a 64-bit port of Fluent to the AMD64 architecture. And it's expected that an AMD64 optimized version of Fluent will be available by the first quarter of next year.

A 64-bit version for AMD64 will be announced on this page when available:

AMDs Opteron processor (a part of the AMD64 platform) is currently only supported by Fluent in 32-bit mode.

Re: Fluent for AMD64 confirmed
This is really great news!

We use Fluent at work and are planning to buy new powerful workstations later this year or the beginning of next year. I hear that the 64-bit performance on Opteron is really great. I'll certainly put in a recommendation for buying dual Opteron-based systems, and I hope that the prices have dropped a bit too by then.
