Its not x86, its x86_64 which is the technical designation for x64. x64 is actually a misnomer since its just an extension on x86 and not really 64bit computing. Most operating systems, including linux, mac, and windows only populate 44bits of address space so you really only have 44bit computing. (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X86-64)
Now you are mixing addressable space with the width of the registers and the width of the databus. Those are two different things. 44bit address space is 16 Terabyte of memory. A lot more than the 8 GB that is there. So in reality, if you have 8GB of RAM, then you 33 bit computing? That's nonsense.
Cut the PS4/XBOX720 vs PC guys, we all know that new a generation pc can kick butt of even PS5/XBOX1080. In the mean time enjoy day one releases of cool new games on your CFW PS3.
Trolling much? Coming into PS3 NEWS forum and taking the time to post PC superiority.. you must not have much PC games to play with besides FPS.
Firstly game consoles don't pretend to be more superior just more convenient and more closed Eco system. And we don't have to spend to upgrade graphics card every year to play latest games in highest fps rate.
Secondly we got exclusives you will never get on PCs. And I could go on but that's just wasting my breath.
Wow, your argument against them is just as bad, sure PC gamers upgrade parts but console games are locked at half the frame rate sometimes and have lower graphics options and my 5 year old card can play games at better settings than ps3 games, There are exclusives on each system and pc games are often cheaper than the console ones, online games can have private servers and wont die as easily etc.
I am a fan of console and pc, I play consoles for the few exclusives and things like PSN/Xbox arcade titles online
