Epson and Windows XP x64 compatibility

RELATES TO:

  • Epson software and driver compatibility.
  • Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64 Edition

EXPLANATION:


Epson is committed to supporting the Windows XP 64-bit platform and will continue to develop Applications and Device drivers across our range of digital imaging products.


The x64 architecture is an extension to the current x86 architecture used by Intel and AMD processors. Intel in particular has had other 64-bit platforms in the past (notably the Itanium), but these have been targeted for server and enterprise application. Windows XP x64 brings the benefits of 64-bit computing to mainstream desktop and notebook systems.


One key difference between 32-bit and 64-bit Windows XP-based computing lies in the 64-bit version's ability to use much more system memory. Windows XP x64 Edition can support up to 128GB of RAM.


Another major benefit of the x64 architecture is better performance. This is due to the increased number of registers on x64 processors, as well as the improved design of the floating point unit (FPU) on these processors. Windows XP Professional x64 Edition will run on the AMD Athlon 64, AMD Opteron, Intel Xeon with EM64T and Intel Pentium 4 with EM64T.


Some products are supported using drivers supplied with the operating system or inbox drivers. Other products require specially designed 64-bit drivers which are or will be made available for download from the Epson support website - please visit this download library to download the lastest versions of the Windows XP 64-bit drivers.


Note:

After 2006, Windows XP x64 drivers are provided on the CD-ROM supplied with your product - operating system support is confirmed in the product specifications. However, the latest driver is always available to download from the Epson support website.


For digital cameras, picture viewers or old printers, use the drivers included on the Windows XP x64 installation CD-ROM (normally installed with Windows and installed through Plug and Play or the Add Hardware Wizard).
