What is the difference between 8 bit 16 bit and 32 bit processor?

already exists.

Would you like to merge this question into it?

already exists as an alternate of this question.

Would you like to make it the primary and merge this question into it?

exists and is an alternate of .

The internal parts like registers and ALU use data in 8-bits in a 8 nit processor and so in a 16 bit and 32 bit processor the use 32 bit data.....the BUS which carries data from one part of a proceesor to another has 8-lines in a 8 bit processor,16 lines in a 16 bit and 32lines ina 32 bit one.....because all these bits have to be transmitted simultaneously.

What is the difference between 16 bit compilers and 32 bit compilers in C?

16 bit compilers compile the program into 16-bit machine code that will run on a computer with a 16-bit processor. 16-bit machine code will run on a 32-bit processor, but 32-b

What is the difference between a 32-bit processor and a 64-bit processor?

The fundamental difference between a 32-bit and 64-bit microprocessor is what their names suggest: the size of the basic integer operations, also called the 'native' size of a

What is the Difference between 8 bit and 16 bit?

the number of bits describing the architecture of a CPU system define its maximum "word size", or how many bits it can process at one time. In an 8-bit system, a standard inte

How do you tell the difference between 64 bit and 32 bit?

there are lot of difference few of them for example if you if you  have windows xp with 64 it can supports 4 gb ram but 32 bit cant.  and also with graphics card 64 bit work

What is the difference between 16 bit and 32 bit color?

A better question would be - What is the difference between 16bit and 24bit color?   Colour is usually represented on computers, & displayed using 3 colour elements - Red

What is difference between 16 bit 32 bit applications?

16-bit Windows applications were designed to run under Windows 3.0 and 3.1, while 32-bit Windows applications were designed for Windows 95, 98, NT, and 2000. They are written

Comparison between windows 16 bit 32 bit?

  Most modern operating systems are either 32 bit or 64 bit but it mostly has to do with memory coding. 32bit can utilize a maximum or 4gb or RAM due to the amount of nu

What is the difference between an 8-bit and a 16-bit sound card?

Quality is the difference. When playing sound with 8-bit sample resolution, we have the sound wave encoded with 256 levels what is not very accurate. Analog circuits placed af

What is the difference between 16 bit channel and 8 bit channel?

16-bit channel stands for Deep Color, it means that every pixel of image have one of 230-48 (1'073'741'824-281'474'976'710'656) of colors (MUCH more than our eye able to perce

Difference between 16 bit and 32 bit microprocessor?

The length of commands a microprocessor can address per clock cycle is in part measured by the bit-rate and the operations per cycle. In your case, the bit rate, the literal s

What is the difference between a 16 bit and a 32 bit?

think of it as lanes on a highway16 lanes verses 32 lanes verse 64 hardly any cpus are 16 bit anymore not since 286 and early 386 cpus 16bit soundcards still exist as CD's sti
