No.

64 bits provides a range of +/- 9,223,372,036,854,775,807. What is the

ratio of the forces of Brownian motion in room temperature air and of a

Leave the banal comparisons to the journalists. It is fairly simple to

run out of 64 bits when you are working with the cascaded CIC filter,

for example.

BTW, there is a MIRACL math library which alows having the arithmetic

with any given precision.
