I may dare to guess that todays CPUs are going to be 128 or even 256-bit
internal / therefore there may have to be 256-bit hardware encryption
in-chip as well. (Dedicated mainly for servers where Linux is playing a
leading role. Unfortunatelly the inexorable race for the priority in
bussiness =>costumers, clients,companies and buyers might get tricky or
even dirty to get rid of the competitors ). But the overall architecture of
the motherboards as we are talking is about/i386.. even Ubuntu versions and
Win 7,8,10..etc today are in the time of overstep to 64-bit architecture
which may last for a decade. Many other chip manufacturers are going to
step on this bandwagon not only leading Intel and ('left part of brains')
AMD. Since there's to be developed SSDs, RAMs, GPUs, I/O controllers...a
bunch of chips that have to support 64-bit architecture.
 Like I know and follow this world of technology actually living & studying
on a hardship. Have fine there!
