How to know the bit depth of a Windows system?
Bit depth is the ability of a processor to simultaneously process a certain number of bits. In this case, this definition is written in the simplest words, since if you go into the scientific nuances, then unfortunately, it will be difficult to understand something.
Today, Windows can only be two bits wide: 32-bit, and 64-bit. And if you see a description somewhere on the site, say Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit, then keep in mind that this version is equivalent to x86, and Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit is x64.
Of course, there is a difference between these versions of Windows (32 and 64 bits), but this is not the topic of this lesson. Today we decided to find out the bit depth of Windows installed with us.
How to know the bit depth of Windows?
Very simple 🙂
On the desktop, find My computer, right-clicking on it, go to “Properties”.
If the computer is not found on the desktop, do the same through Start.
Or through a search in Windows 8.
We get into Properties and see various parameters of our computer. In particular, we can find out the capacity of the system. Pay attention to the item System type and the bit depth is indicated in front of it.
In my case, this is a 64-bit operating system, an x64 processor.
