Given expanding arithmetic and splitting large words into 2 smaller words, arbitrary precision arithmetic can be implemented without too bad efficiency. That’s as much as you get on x86, and I believe x64 architectures. With the vector operations of higher end Mill processors, it gets better. Not sure what else you might want for such numeric representation.
