Hey Jasper Torres!

A byte is a basic unit of information. As you mentioned above, processors are about 32-bits and 64-bits.

64-bit and 32-bit processor has no relation with the heat. Basically we can say that 32-bit and 64-bit processors are CPU. More the bit of processor, more the amount of Ram it will Handel. So we can say that 64-bit processors are more efficient than 32-bit processors. Because 64-bit processors can handle the most amount of RAM as compared to 32-bit processor.

I hope that now you understand that what is the difference between 32-bits and 64-bit processors.

A 32-bit processor has 32-bit resolution deal with instructions, his memory addresses, etc.

While a 64-bit has twice instead.

So, one of the easiest differences to note between the two is that the RAM is limited to 4 GB on 32-bit (well more specifically 3 GB + 1 GB is lost because windows is used for addressing devices) while a 64-bit processor can exceed by far the limits. But to take full advantage of 64-bit, you must:

  • An operating system running under 64 bit.
  • A software compiled in 64-bit (otherwise it will run in 32-bit mode and therefore cannot fully exploit the capabilities of 64-bit).

Today, having a 64-bit processor becomes essential: According to Microsoft, Windows 7 is the latest to support 32-bit processors.
