Difference between 32-bit and 64-bit Operating System

* 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.
* 64 bit 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.
* 64bit can increase overall program performance
* 64 bit benefit to academic institutions and private companies, where large calculations are being performed, huge databases are being accessed, and complex problems are being solved.
* A 64-bit processor is made with more advanced silicon processes, have more transistors, and faster speeds.
* In 64 bit you need 4 GB of RAM to take full advantage of the capabilities
* There is another problem when you run 32-bit software programs in the environment of a 64-bit operating system. Many programs won’t work properly, such as Adobe Acrobat and Windows Media Player
