    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.

    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...
