The Difference Between 32-bit and 64-bit Windows

When you’re downloading Windows from Microsoft’s site or installing from a disc, one question you’ll have to answer is whether you want to install a 32-bit or 64-bit operating system (OS)

So far there are two different systems of base that is 32 bit and 64 bit. Sometimes users don't look at the base of Windows being used, whether 32 bit or 64 bit. When in use, there is a difference between the two and the difference will have an impact on performance. What actually is the difference as well as the advantages and disadvantages of Windows 32 bit and 64 bit? Here is my review.

1. The amount of RAM that can be used

The most fundamental difference is known by many users is the maximum amount of RAM that can be used. Each system has a different limitation. For Windows-based 32 bit has a number of limitations of the smaller of RAM on a 64 bit. Windows 32 bits have a maximum usage limit is less than 4 GB of RAM (about 3.2 GB) and will work more optimal when using 1 or 2 GB of RAM. While the Windows 64 bit can be read to more than 4 GB of RAM. If on Windows 32 bit paired RAM for 4 GB then that will be read only up to 3 GB only. This is caused due to the difference in processor architecture between 32 bit and 64 bit.

2. The performance of 32 bit and 64 bit

The difference in base a Windows System 32 and 64 bit is actually determined by the capabilities of processors. Of course if compared, 64 bit processor technology newer than on 32 bits. Windows 32 bit with 32 bit processors as well, have the ability to be under 64 bit. So the combination of Windows and processor is only suitable to do light work and open the application which is not too heavy. While the Windows 64 bit processor and suited to heavier work such as design, video editing, etc.

3. The ability to process Data

Architectural differences on Windows and 32 and 64 bit processor would certainly be very influential on the performance of the computer itself. Numbers 32 and 64 represents the actual amount of data that can be processed in one round. 32 bit means that when doing a one-time process, the data loaded is 32 bits. So in one data processing, Windows, and 64 bit processors faster and up.

4. Compatible Software

The difference is quite influential as well is the compatibility of software that can be used. Windows 32 bit will not be able to run 64 bit software. While the Windows 64 bit more freely because it can run 64 or 32 bit software.

Advantages and disadvantages of Windows 32 and 64 bit

Advantages of Windows 32 bit:

  • Can run older software and applications with a base of 16 bits.
  • More compatible with older drivers. Suitable for laptops or older computers.
  • Can work with optimal though with only 2 GB RAM

Lack of Windows 32 bit:

  • Just a little new software compatible
  • Cannot use more than 4 GB of RAM
  • Cannot be used for heavy software like After Effects

Advantages of Windows 64 bit:

  • Faster and more efficient
  • Being able to make more optimal processor performance
  • Can run 32 bit software
  • Suitable for running the latest software that prioritizes graphics

Lack of Windows 64 bit:

  • Not suitable for older PC

So this is all you need to know about 32-bit and 64-bit Windows. In case you want to get one, i will always advice you to go for the 64-bit version because of its speed. Stay glued to us as we release more fascinating post. Share thus post and remain blessed.
