Here I will explain a very simple way to find out any Windows PC running 32-bit or 64-bit version of windows.

It really needs a survey to know how many percentage of PC User are concern about 64-Bit version. But most of the laptop and brand new PC sold in last 6-12 months are supposed to be 64-bit compatible. So either people are concern or not, there are some real needs to know if your PC is running 32-bit or 64-bit. As 64-bit version of any application will run in that system a lot faster, so why not take that chance?

BTW basic thing is this 32-bit and 64-bit version are just processor architecture. A 64-bit register can store 264 = 18 446 744 073 709 551 616 different values. So its fast, a lot fast then 32-bit. Actually most recent released Intel and AMD Processor from Core2Due to latest Core i has 64-bit architecture. But to get benefit of 64-bit you will also need 64-bit OS. From Windows XP Microsoft have 64-bit version of all OS.
So, if you are sure your Processor is 64-bit, most newly purchased machine will be, then just check if you are taking full advantage of your 64-bit.

Check Windows Version:

Computers running Windows XP

  • Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
    • If “x64 Edition” is listed under System, you’re running the 64-bit version of Windows XP.
    • If you don’t see “x64 Edition” listed under System, you’re running the 32-bit version of Windows XP.

    The edition of Windows XP you’re running is displayed under System near the top of the window.

Computers running Windows Vista or Windows 7

  • Click the Start button Picture of the Start button, right-click Computer, and then click Properties.
    • If “64-bit Operating System” is listed next to System type, you’re running the 64-bit version of Windows Vista or Windows 7.
    • If “32-bit Operating System” is listed next to System type, you’re running the 32-bit version of Windows Vista or Windows 7.

    The edition of Windows Vista or Windows 7 you’re running is displayed under Windows edition near the top of the window.

I am personally very much interested about this updated architecture, and how this extended memory allocation could help performance. We hope to see 128-bit processor soon too.
