Nope, here is why:

2^32: 4294967296

2^64: 18446744073709551616

2^128 3.4028236692093846346337460743177e+38 Nothing comes close to maxing 64bit yet, and 128bit is just insane.

IBM has something for their S/370 mainframes but no modern CPU uses a 128-bit. Some CPU's have 128-bit registers but will only use 64-bit memory addresses.
