Default upgrade to 64 bit

Do you disagree with the following link or am I misinterpreting it?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_Core

All Core Duo processors feature EM64T.

So the one you listed, will run Vista x64. It won't be much of a
difference
over a core 2 duo processor because EM64T is sorta like a software based
driver where as core 2 duo processors are directly supported with Vista.

But still, you can run x64. I have a Pentuim D 820, I run x64 vista.

The link you provided appears to be correct since Core Duo CPUs do not have
EM64T support whereas the Core 2 Duo and Pentium Dual Core D series CPUs
do.

Following is another link that states this:

http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/200...n_the_desktop/

Also I could find no statement at the Intel Website that states that Core
Duo chips have EM64T support.

Core and Core Duo chips are strictly 32bit. I have a Core Duo laptop.

I just switched over to it without any problems at all, I just like the fact
that now I can have 8 gig on memory and use it all. It really spead up some
of my programs that I ran. Couldnt be happier.

Hi,

found this thread just passing by...

I have a core 2 duo T7300 cpu running 32 bit windows vista.

Are there any known benefits of moving to 64-bit ?
Or on the other hand cons ?

just looking for some experience in this area..

In my computer properties it says:
Genuine Intel CPU T2250 @ 1.73GHz 1.73 GHz

The processor logo tag on my case says:
Intel Centrino Duo

I don't know if this is enough info or not, just let me know. thanks for
the help,

What processor do you have? That will tell you what it is capable of. The
Core 2 Duo, Athlon 64, and some P4's are 64 bit capable.

I am a pretty technical person, just not with laptops. Thanks for your help,
and by the way, that was a pretty good assumption :-)

Anything's possible, but the expense and technical knowledge required are
beyond the average user. If you have to ask, it's not for you. :-)

A 2250 is a Core Duo chip which only supports 32 bit Operating Systems.
You have to have a Core 2 Duo(note the 2 in the name) chip to support a
64 bit OS.

Thanks for the good advice. It is much appreciated. I enjoyed getting to
talk with someone in the field that I want to go into :-)

If you crack the case to install a new processor you will pretty much toss
the warranty out the window. So no, I would suspect it's not something
you're going to be doing.

Me, I'm an IT network/systems engineer and I wouldn't do it. :-)

There is a much easier way to determine if you can use 64-bit if you already
have Vista 32-bit installed.

-Right click on My Computer
-Choose Properties
-Click on Windows System Performance Rating (you may not already be rated,
so follow the prompts to do the rating).
-Once the rating is complete, click on View and Print Details
-In the printable menu, it will state 64-bit Compatible:

Viola, you have your answer!
