    x64 based processor


    Hello!

    It says my processor is x64 bit based , but I'm running x32 bit Windows 10. It's a dual core,so if I'm running x32 only a core will work,or what?

    All it means is that your processor is capable of handling 64-bit. On a 32 bit install both cores will work fine. Obviously, by running 32 bit Windows you are missing out on some of the inherent efficiencies of a 64-bit set up. In short don't worry.
