When you try downloading Desktop Central, you would come across 32-bit and 64-bit options available for download. Here’s the difference between a 32-bit and a 64-bit application:
A system comprises three layers: the processor, the operating system and the application. What basically happens is, to run either a 64-bit OS or 32-bit OS, we require support from the lower level, processor. Similarly, to run either a 64-bit or a 32-bit application, we require support from all the lower levels such as OS and processor.
There are two types of processors, namely, 32-bit and 64-bit. These refer to the processor architecture and tell us how much memory can be accessed from the CPU register. For instance, a 32-bit system can access 232 memory addresses, i.e 4 GB of RAM and a 64-bit system can access 264 memory addresses, i.e actually 18 billion GB of RAM. The key difference between these processors is the number of calculations performed per second.
Depending on the architecture of your processor and operating system, download either 32-bit or 64-bit version of Desktop Central.
