Yes, atomic64_t is declared as
typedef long long __declspec( align(8) ) atomic64_t ;
for x86 win32 (for x86 gcc there is similar declaration)
So, I hope it is aligned and atomic.
In additions, I check the proper alignment in calls by
assert( is_aligned<8>( pAddr )) ;
where is_aligned is:
template <int ALIGN, typename T>
static inline bool is_aligned(T const * p)
return (((uptr_atomic_t)p) & (ALIGN - 1)) == 0 ;
