This is a very interesting and timely advance in processors. The industry has been looking for 64-bit multithreading chips for some time, although many are asking why they are needed since the full capabilities of 32-bit multithreading chips are often not utilized yet.

Note that Marvell is an architectural licensee of ARM and designs their own cores (formerly XScale). They don't need ARM to come out with a 64-bit core. However, all the ARM licensees need ARM to standardize a 64-bit ISA before they can release an implemented core.
