64 bit RRS feed

  • Question

  • very simple question from my side.

    what is meant by 64 bit .net development.Are the classes in .net2.0 storing in 64bit memory or what.

    any advantages of it.I know about 64 bit processors,databus,motherboard but no knowledge about 64 bit .net

    Also is operating systems also classified as 32 bit,64 bit.

    if so then what is windows xp and windows 2000 bit configuration

    Cheers

  • Windows XP and Windows 2000 are most commonly 32 Bit OSs. So they are 32 Bit configs. But there are 64 Bit versions of them i.e. Windows XP 64 Bit. The advantage of 64 compilations are more memory can be addressed, more registers ( GPRs and SSE/SIMD ) are commonly available on x64 platform, faster calling convention like fastcall etc.
