Windows 8: x86 vs x64
Which one do you use/have?
Windows 8 x86
Windows 8 x64
I want to understand the same thing.The people who can run both - x64 and x86 are lucky, but we who can run only x86...what we are doing? Really I'm very dissapointed of this. I want to try this build too, but...
i have a x86/x64 computers and not going to do x64 one as its my primary computer so be waiting for x86 leak or well beta
You're disappointed? Dude, get real. These things are leaks. You're not meant to get your hands on those builds so you'd better be humble. If the timebomb blasts, so be it. Windows 8 is coming, anyway. New leaks will happen, anyway. Just be patient...
canouna I am sure you have Windows 8 7989 x86. Why don't you share it with us?
He doesn't need to, there are some timebomb removal hacks for 7955 and anyway we only have about 2 months to go until BUILD which i'm expecting an official beta to be released around then.
heh, my processor is 64-bits capable, anyway i prefer always run x86 OSes
me too HI5
The problem is not only TimeBomb, but we 32 bit users also wants to enjoy new leaks.
I think Windows 8 will be the first generation that i totally give up x86 version.
We want windows 8 32 bit soon
We really want a new x86 leak ASAP.
same here i prefer x86 because i have just 2gb ram. i know 32 can support up to 3gb but until i get money enough to get me a good 12gb ram i wont upgrade to x64 as main os. no real need ya know.
although i have found this perticular version of (7989) to run particularly smoother on my machine than previous x64 OSs
I like x86 better because it's more stable for me than x64, still the test PC I'm using for Windows 8 supports only 32-bit because it's a single core. I'm using 32 bit os on my main PC as well even through I have over 4 Gb ram
I prefer x86 than x64 because it gives more choices in drivers and applications...
12 GB RAM, thats too much.
I think you better change that now as it has already been edited by the Admin.
And how do you use the other RAM (>3GB)??? I tested the kernel patcher for Windows 7, but it didn't worked.
Now that all the drivers I need are x64,so for me I don't see any reason to use x86
Its not only about drivers, its about our old 32 bit computers.
X64 bit is the future...you should start getting adjusted to x64 bit..if you have good hardware configuration i would suggest you in using x64 and if your configuration is basic one then better stick with x32 bit..
