Greetings,

I would like to know if it is recommended to use 32-bit OS (Windows 7) on 64-bit CPU. I know that it will run but I would like to know if I'm able to maximize the capability of my CPU even though my software is 32-bit.

Thanks and I hope my question will be answered.

Hello Patrickmeg,

You are right that you can use 32 bit OS in 64 bit processor. But If you use 64 bit OS with 64 bit processor you will get some added advantages. They are:

  • You will get more memory support that is more than 4 GB which is supported by 32 bit OS.
  • You can use programs that support 64 bit OS & in that case you will get increased program performance.
  • You will get better security with your data.

So if you use 64 bit OS you can get advantage from your processor. Hope I am able to answer your queries. Thank you.
