What is 32-bit 64-bit? How many bits do I use Windows?

The touch of information technology is the touch of a magic wand. The touch of this technology can change a person, a society, a country, the world so fast that the world has gone a few steps further as you think about it. And the biggest surprise of this information technology is a magic box. What? Surprised? Honestly, a magic box is playing a role in the change and development of so many of us today. Well, no more secrets. There is no such thing as a magic box. In fact, I call a computer a magic box. Today, the tide of digital development has reached the villages with the touch of the computer. Now computers are everywhere in the village. The city is more surprising.

What is 32-bit 64-bit? How many bits do I use Windows?


However, there is a reason behind writing this today. Today a friend of mine bought a new computer. Now he buys a new computer and goes to [Windows Setup] to give me the operating system and asks for my help. His first question was what are 32 bit and 64 bit windows? And what is the difference? I have been able to explain to him, so now I will tell you this bit. You must have understood my writing today. Let's learn the difference between 32 bit and 64 bit without further ado.

With 32 bits and 64 bits, we often see x86 bits written. Let me tell you here, 8 bit and 32-bit kernel seim. So I don't think I need to say anything about that bit. Our computers have Kernel Patch Protection which is related to the security of Windows.

The kernel is a way of maintaining the integration of computer software with the processor, hardware, device driver and other operating systems of the computer-based on this kernel. This kernel patch protection of Windows is much stronger at 64 bit than 32 bit.

The memory addressing the power of the 32-bit operating system is much less than the memory addressing the power of 64-bit operating system. Basically, this is the main reason for this difference. Now you may say what is this memory addressing? Memory addressing is when our processors work with any data, its primary function is to keep the data somewhere temporarily and we use RAM to store it. Now you may want to know the calculation of addressing this memory. So let's learn how to calculate 32 bit and 64-bit memory addressing.

Suppose your processor will now work with 1 bit. In this case, the processor will use 2 memory locations for 1 bit (binary 0 and 1). If you work with 2 bits, it will be doubled, that is, it will use 4 memory locations. In this way 2 * 2 * 2 = 8 memory locations for 3 bits. 2 * 2 * 2 * 2 = 16 for 4 bit work, 2 * 2 * 2 * 2 * 2 = 32 memory locations for 5 bit work. If we calculate for work up to 32 bits, then it stands at 2*32 = 429496296 Which if we convert to gigabytes then it will be 4 gigabytes.

So you understand that the 32-bit processor supports up to 4 GB of memory (RAM). In other words, if we want to work on a 32-bit processor with more memory than the 32-bit operating system, then that 4 GB of memory will not work. This means that if you install 32 bit Windows on a PC with 8 GB RAM, you will use only a 4 GB RAM system and the remaining 4 GB RAM will be idle. Simply put, a 32-bit processor will not work with more than 4 GB of memory (RAM). And if the processor wants to work with 64 bits, then 2*64 which results in 18.4 exabytes which are more than gigabytes, terabytes. So the 64-bit processor can work with 16.4 exabytes of RAM at the same time. And 64 bit can work with such a huge amount of memory (RAM) that such a large amount of RAM has not come into the market at present. Converting 18.4 exabytes to gigabytes stands at 1975 crore gigabytes.

The 32-bit processor will not be able to work with more than 4 GB of memory, but the 64-bit processor will be able to work with the huge memory RAM that is updated in the market from 4 GB. All current software, games, video graphics, all Adobe graphics products or other memory devices work with 64 bits. They actually say that a 64-bit operating system will work better because a 64-bit operating system means working with a lot of memory RAM. In fact, 32-bit processors and operating systems for older devices of the previous model. If your PC RAM is less than 4 GB then I would say you use 32 bit. Now you say why not use 64 bit? In fact, you can use 64 bits in 4 GB, but it will not work. You can use all the software on your PC using 64 bit for 4 GB will even run. But they will work very slowly. But if you go to use the original software made for 64 bit, it will not work properly.

Again, suppose your PC has more than 4 GB of RAM, but you have given the operating system 32 bits, but you can not work like mind. Because if your operating power is not more than 4 GB, the rest of your memory will be a bit lazy.

How do I know how many bits my computer?

If you are using a Windows computer, right-click on the PC or My computer on the right side of the PC screen and click on Properties, you will see the image above. Note that the 64-bit operating system here means that you currently have 64 bit Windows installed on your Windows computer. Then it says x64 based processor means your computer's processor supports up to 64 bit addressing.

So this was a punch of 32 bits and 64 bits. Hope you understand. And even then, if you have any information or any opinion, you must comment.
