Do SIMD processors have bigger registers? I mean they still have 8 but bigger than 32bit...? I can't manage to understand,because even on wikipedia,it shows that a normal processors puts a number in every register and then does calculations on them.But a SIMD might store even 3 numbers on a single register,3 on another and so on,and do calculations on them.

So are SIMD registers bigger? What does that mean? are they bigger than 64bit?! What does that say about 64 bit processors?
