Conclusion On 64 Bit PC - Using a 64-bit machine in comparison to a 32-bit machine is far better for many facts such as speed during encryption of data but for security point of view we can say that it may be advantageous conditionally.
I met my friend before few days, he was planning to purchase a new PC having 64 bit. He is right now owing 32-bit PC machine. He justifies the reason as 64-bits machine is comparatively more secure from viruses, spywares, malwares etc. I am still wondering is it true that more bits may be better for the PC by the security point of view.
When we talk about bit, we can say that the bit represent the largest integer number on which the process can operate. So it’s clear that the computer having higher bit can perform the bigger progams comparatively faster. It does not mean that computer with low bit cannot perform the larger programs. Obviously they can do, but they use to accomplish bigger programs into pieces ranging to the multiple integer number according to their bit amount. In this case computer with large bit are advantageous because they can perform the process in a simplified manner and comparatively faster.
Doubtlessly 64-bit computer machine is more perfect than the machine with lower bit because it can factorise the numbers more far than a 32-bit machine or machine having lower bit. Actually 64-bit computer versus 32-bit computer comparison by the security point of view has no base because the matter of security relies on many other factors too apart of amount of bit.
Secondly, the 64-bit machine can load the data on crntral processing unit by 64-bit at a time but a 32-bit machine can do it only with 32-bit at a time. Still the 64-bit machines are not so much popular yet. The reason behind it that the user need to have a capable hardware driver if he/she want to use 64-bit windows.
So these are some differences between the machine with higher bit and the machine with lower bit. However, the point is their comparison for the purpose of security. So, I would just like to say that its really not reasonable to change our lower bit machine for the higher one for following reasons:
- Actually now-a-days 32-bit computers are more popular than the 64-bit computer so viruses are just designed to follow 32-bit systems but surely they will be designed to infect the 64-bit system when it will be popular.
- Next reason is that some viruses dont depend on the platform regarding bit to attack on the system. So they can easily infect the system having any range of bit.
So, the topic can be concluded on the fact that using higher bit machine is reasonable to encrypt the data in larger numbers in order to secure the data from breakage or decryption and for some extent for faster processing but it’s nothing like that to utilise such kind of machine under the misconception that it will have much security. It may be or it may be not.
