Understanding the true difference between 64 and 32 bit
« on: September 27, 2008, 06:24:02 PM »
The terms 32-bit and 64-bit refer to the way a computer\'s processor (also called a CPU), handles information.

The 64-bit versions of Windows can utilize more memory than 32-bit versions of Windows. This helps minimize the time spent swapping processes in and out of memory by storing more of those processes in Random access memory (RAM) rather than on the hard disk. This, in turn, can increase overall program performance. For more details, go to A description of the differences between 32-bit versions of Windows Vista and 64-bit versions of Windows Vista online.
