Well, this is kind a mysterious question which we often heard, what’s the Difference between 32 bit and 64 bit Operating system?But it will not be the mystery for you any more.Here, in this particular post i’m going to share with you the exact difference between 32 bit and 64 bit Operating system. So let’s get started.

Difference between 32 bit and 64 bit Operating system

Following are the s0me difference between 32 bit and 64 bit Operating system

1) In 64 bit operating system data can be processed into larger pieces which means more accuracy and ultimately it will improve system speed overall.

2) 32 bit Operating system can access upto 4 Gb of RAM (random access memory) but its not enough for to run modern applications which needs more memory than 4 gb. For to overcome this problem 64 bit Operating system was made. A 64 bit operating system can access up to 16 hexa byte theoretical amount of RAM. That’s one of  the major advantage of 64 bit operating systems.

3) A  64 bit operating system can process the information twice faster (theoretically) than a 32 bit operating system.

4) A 64 bit operating system can address  large number of memory location than 32 bit operating system simultaneous which ultimately increase the computer speed.

Keep in mind That!

i) A 64 bit operating system can’t be installed on a 32 bit processor but a 32 bit Operating system can be installed on a 64 bit processor.

ii) Drivers of 32 bit operating system some time works and sometimes not on a 64 bit operating system but Drivers of 32 bit operating system never can be installed on 64 bit operating system.

Final Words

If you have 64 bit Processor and good amount of RAM installed then its best to have 64 bit operating system in your computer. This will give you performance boost by which you can perform your work more quickly and precisely.
