Which problem occurs 64-bit operating system or application software runs 32-bit processor?
More bits means more data can processed in larger chunks. In 1995, windows 95 is the first operating system introduced in 32-bit. Processors like pentium-1, pentium-2, pentium-3 and pentium-4 are made by 32-bit. Later pentium-4 is remade by 64-bit.
A 32-bit operating system will run on a 32-bit or 64-bit processor without any problem but a 64-bit os will only run on a 64-bit processor.
Samely a 32-bit or 64-bit application will run on a 32-bit or 64-bit os without any problem but a 64-bit application will only run on a 64-bit os. Microsoft will release windows8 with 128-bit. Tell more about here. Please response below.
