Questions tagged [32-bit]

Refers to processors where data are stored in 32-bit registers. Use for questions about hardware or software only if 32-bit architecture is central to the question. For questions comparing 32 vs. 64 bit architecture, use [32-vs-64-bit] instead of the individual [32-bit] and [64-bit] tags.
