This is a series that can potentially be continued ad infinitum, cf. google books:"256-bit", google books:"1024-bit", google books:"32768-bit", and potentially any other power of 2 + -bit. We should probably have an entry on -bit, though. -- Liliana 19:36, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

  • Totally agree. delete all as pure SOP. An analogy I could see is 12-year-old or 5-wheel. No need for -bit either, [[bit]] suffices. --Rockpilot 22:26, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
What RockPilot just said, delete. Mglovesfun (talk) 09:15, 7 October 2011 (UTC)
(Well, two-wheeled passed!) While 32-bit and above are technical, I would note that 8- and 16-bit are often used to describe the video games etc. of that era, e.g. (from Google) "Kind of 8-bit Music played on an Acoustic Guitar", "folks who've used 16-bit style graphics". Whether that makes them worth an entry is dubious. Equinox 09:29, 7 October 2011 (UTC)
8-bit is definitely not SOP, because it refers to things that aren't necessarily in 8 bits at all, such as 8-bit art and music. —CodeCat 13:00, 7 October 2011 (UTC)
In which case it is missing one or more definitions. -- Liliana 18:03, 7 October 2011 (UTC)
I don't think -bit needs an entry because it's just bit attached to some other word by normal English hyphenation rules. Equinox 23:43, 26 October 2011 (UTC)
Delete: sum of parts. — TAKASUGI Shinji (talk) 17:53, 3 November 2011 (UTC)
Delete except 8-bit obviously. (Struck.) DAVilla 06:18, 13 November 2011 (UTC)

Kept 8-bit and deleted the rest. — TAKASUGI Shinji (talk) 05:04, 9 December 2011 (UTC)
