The advantages of Windows XP 64 bit

Compared to the wildly-used Windows 32 bit operating system, Windows XP 64 bit provides better performance and room to grow for large-size applications and operating systems. Here are some of 64-bit advantages:

  • First, Windows XP 64 bit OS support GPT disk that means you could use a hard disk which is larger than 2TB as a storage device.

  • It is well known that 32 bit Windows can't address more than 2GB memory, while 64 bit Windows can use all the memory that is larger than 4 GB and it can support 32 GB memory at most.

  • The notable advantage of Windows XP 64 bit is that it can work not only with 64-bit applications, but also with 32-bit programs without any limitations.
