x86?

Up until now WoA has used 32-bit ARM "native" applications and x86 Win32 32-bit emulation. So, both the ARM and x86 code was similarly limited in memory use.

The 64-bit ARM was always on the cards and should allow for larger datasets. Although x64 emulation is, AFAIK, still not going to happen.
