    How much is the bit system?

    Nowadays, many people work on computers, but not many can answer the question: how much is the bit system of their computer, what is a bit of information and in general how information is recorded on various media used in laptops or computers.

    The basic unit of information that is used in a computer is bit. It can take only two values: 0 or 1. From a combination of 0 and 1, all information is recorded on all possible information carriers on a computer. All information is generated in digital cycles, and they are used in the construction of the most complex systems.

    Nowadays, 32 and 64 bit systems are used. The number indicates how many bits of information the processor can process at one time. In a 32-bit system, 32 bits is a register bit width, and the processor has a memory access limit of 4 gigabytes of memory. For a 64-bit system, there is no limit to 4 gigabytes of memory, and at the same time twice as much information is processed.

    The main thing is to know that on a 64-bit system it will work on contact with 32, launching 32-bit applications. True productive in some processes will be very low. But the 32-bit system will not function with 64-bit.

    How to find out how many bit system? Anyone can do this by taking no complicated actions on the computer:

    • access the address / data bus of the processor;
    • view computer properties;
    • view information when booting the computer;
    • put the program for 64 bit system, if 32 bit, then it will not start.
