When is Windows XP 64-Bit Edition out? And will Athlon 64 gaming systems run it? Or will it only be for workstations?

Windows XP 64-Bit is already out for Intel Itanium Workstations. It's Called Windows XP 64-Bit Version 2002:

This is the link to Windows XP 64-Bit Extended:

Any of the AMD Athlon64's will be running WinXP-64E

So XP-64 can run on Athlon 64, but XP-64E just runs better on the Athlon 64?

One will only run on Itanium, the other (currently in beta) will run on AMD64 and Intel's x86-64 CPUs
