32-bit vs 64-bit

32-bit vs 64-bit

32-bit vs 64-bit, yes this one topic computer buyers always ask. A 32-bit computer is a computer that is normally averaged. Its main purpose of build is to cut down cost as swift as possible and not degrade too much necessary quality.

This type of computers are usually intended for the computer User whose task is to perform normal work like open word processing software, checking emails, instant messaging, watching videos or movies and numerous other end user stuffs you all are doing or used to do.

Because of this it comes built with limitations to the geek; due to its intention of build being to lower cost of product for the end user. On the other hand 64-bit computers are computer built with great power and accuracy for the developers. Its purpose of build is to create content, manage content, give out quality WYSIWYG end products or software(s) for the end user to run.

The 64-bit version of computers handles large amounts of random access memory (RAM) more effectively than a 32-bit system. Its components are built not compromising on quality and efficiency of hardware.

This type of computers are normally built for geeks and heavy task doers; developers, mathematicians, statistics agencies, governments, graphics designers etc.

If your project or job is to do with fast processing, high definition graphics, 3d dynamics and other intensive processes, then you should be looking for a  64-bit or x64 computer and not a 32-bit or x86 computer.

Always install a 32-bit program on a 32-bit machine and a 64-bit program on a 64-bit machine. It is worth knowing also, that a 64-bit devices is capable of running a 32-bit OS or program but the opposite is not true.

For Android users; identify your Android device. Mac and Windows owners may determine their system type  as well. Linux owners may determine their devices too.

Some hardware determinants for guessing the type of computer are;

  • 32 bit computers mostly have less than 2 gb of ram with maximum of 4 gb of ram.
  • 32-bit computers are always lowest priced.
  • x86 machines are usually of less quality parts.
  • 64 bit machine always have not less than 2gb of ram.
  • 64-bit machines always comes with great graphics cards.
  • x64 machines processors are very powerful and efficient.
