    Can I upgrade from Windows 10 x86 to Windows 10 x64?


    Hello, I'm interested about the Windows 10 Home/Pro x64.

    I got this laptop with installed Windows 10 Home x86. I looked around do my CPU or just my PC can handle the x64, and the most answer was yes.

    I want to be sure that this is real, so I ask that x64 is compatible for my PC.

    CPU: Intel(R) Atom(TM) Z3735X 1.33GHz 4 core
    GPU: Intel HD Graphics
    RAM: 2,00GB DDR3

    Thanks.

    The only advantage of the 64 bit system is you can use more than 4 gig of ram so not having that it will be worse than the 32 bit system which can only handle 4 gig. If you want to use the 64 bit you need an extra 4 gig or more of ram

    The only benefit of having 64 bit Windows is it can use and handle more than 4 GB RAM. It does not have any additional features compared to 32 bit Windows.

    Your device does absolutely not need 64 bit Windows. I do not believe your processor even supports 4 GB or more RAM.

    I do not know how to tell if your system is a 64-bit system. However here is what I do when I don't know that.

    In my case on one of my Windows 10 computer version 1709 computer, I right-click the start button, then left click system.

    In the system specification system, it shows: system type 32-bit operating system x64-based processor
    --- So far so good. But I don't know if that's enough to prove that the motherboard is 64-bit.

    So then I go to Crucial US | DRAM, Solid State Drive (SSD) Memory Upgrades and let it run their system scanner.
    Information about your make and model shows up on the left side.

    In my case it shows max memory is 8GB - since the maximum memory is more than 4GB that tells me the motherboard is 64-bit.

    If there's a more efficient way tp determine what you want to do, I'll look forward to knowing that.

    Well, I didn't get smarted, just the daily "your pc is the worst, buy the new one".

    Guys, I had so many friends who had only 2 GB of ram, much worse, and even on Microsoft's website also writes that 2 GB is the minimum, not 4 GB. Windows 10 System Requirements Specifications | Microsoft

    But do my CPU ccompatible to the x64? I have so many things can do with x64, and my PC should have better gaming preformance with it.

    Just google your cpu and then click on the Ark link.

    I only see a D, E, F, and G, no X and they are all 64 bit capable.

    Q1, '14 so I wouldn't think it is worth the time to try x64, these are referred to as System on a Chip and you mention you like to play games, this isn't the way to go...sorry...
