Windows® 7 run in 32 bit mode
What do you understand by Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit mode? What are the benefits of running both the versions simultaneously?
Windows 7 is capable of running in both 32 bit mode and 64 bit mode. While you are choosing 32 bit mode and 64 bit mode, you would have to take certain things into consideration. If your CPU is too old then it is better to choose the 32 bit mode. The 32 or 64 bit architecture usually refers to the memory address length which could be referenced by the processor. The 64 Operating System would not automatically make all the applications faster as today most of the software are written and optimized for the 32 bit mode. Most of the PCs which are in use can run on 64 bit Windows 7. Then if your CPU does not support AMD or Intel 64 bit extensions then your PC wont be able to run in 64 bit mode. Then if you run 32 bit applications on a 64 bit Operating System then it would be slower.
The following are the benefits of installing both 32 bit mode and 64 bit mode of Windows 7:
- 64 bit mode improves the performance
- 64 bit mode runs more applications
- 32 bit mode run emulated applications
64 bit mode improves the performance
The 64 bit version of Windows 7 could unlock the power of 64 bit CPU. The MS Office applications could be opened in seconds. Heavy graphical applications like games would start showing great performance. Your PC would start to respond to the commands faster than before. Windows 7 Home Basic, Home Premium, Professional, Windows 7 Enterprise, or Windows 7 Ultimate edition already have the 64-bit version.
64 bit mode runs more applications
The 64 bit versions of Windows 7 can run almost all 32 bit applications. It often runs the applications more quickly. But the 64 bit version cannot use the 32 bit drivers or the utilities which are especially made for 32- bit Operating system. For running the Windows 7 64 bit you would require the need of a 64 bit driver. The applications which require mathematical precision, floating point performance, large databases could be easily run in the 64 bit version.
The emulated applications running on Windows 7 would run easily on 32 bit version when compared to 64 bit version. Then as the 32 bit version has got Microsoft emulation layer, it could function properly. This emulation layer would enable the programs to run efficiently on 32 bit version. Then as the emulated programs runs on PC having 2GB, the 32 bit versions are very sufficient for it so as to run the programs.
