32 bit v/s 64 bit processors explained..



These days everyone is having a 64 bit processor in their computers and mobiles but back in the day there is another mode of processor i.e., 32 bit and there are lots of applications developed on both of these versions ,even Microsoft announced 1in 8.1 and 10 on 32 bit processors .

what is a bit ?
  Bit is a single character in binary i.e.,  0 or 1.
  1 bit  = 2 characters
  2 bits = 4  characters
  3 bits = 8 characters and so on.....

The 32-bit processor was the primary processor used in all computers until the early 1990s. Intel Pentium processors and early AMD processors were 32-bit processors. The operating system and software on a computer with a 32-bit processor is also 32-bit based, in that they work with data units that are 32 bits wide. Windows 95, 98, and XP are all 32-bit operating systems that were common on computers with 32-bit processors.

Main difference between the 32 bit and 64 bit processors is that 64 bit can store more memory in its CPU (2^64 v/s 2^32) .
32 Bit CPU can handle upto 4GB RAM in its system where as 64 bit can handle upto 16 billion GB of RAM which means smooth performance .It doesnot mean more RAM means great performance it has to put up with Latency and Frequency of the CPU which is explained in my recent posts .

First 64 bit processor was released by AMD athlon in 2003 in PC's and it was suddenly game changing and APPLE came with first 64 bit processor in Iphone 5s in mobiles .

 32 bit:-
----------
         Pros:
  -> Fewer issues, more widely compatible

        Cons
  -> Less RAM access, less memory, less efficiency, fewer security features

64 bit :-
---------
   ->    pros:
• More RAM access
        • More efficiency
        • More virtual memory allocation
        • More security features
   
   ->   cons:
        • Possible driver compatibility
        • Some motherboard RAM limits
        • Legacy issues
