Is MSFS2020 32bit or 64bit?

Recommended Posts

Why would you make a 32bit application in the year 2020? 🙂

The biggest difference between 32-bit and 64-bit OSes is that the 32-bit version can only address a bit less than 4GB of memory, in total, for the entire system, and this includes the memory in your video card. For Windows it’s usually about 3.5GB total. For example, if you have a system with 4GB of RAM but your video card has 1GB of memory in it, that leaves just 2.5GB of memory for the OS to use, which isn't much at all for Windows.

Even worse, you could theoretically have an 8GB system running 32-bit Windows, which means there's 4GB of memory in your system that might as well be used as a drink coaster. Only 64-bit systems can address more than 4GB of RAM, so this one reason alone is why most people choose one over the other.

So, a 32bit program will only address about 3.5GB less your graphics memory, as explained above.

It's neither, it's 16 bit. Best dust off your copy of Windows 3.1

Yep. But nothing to do with performance,  so dont include that in any definition. As I get 70 fps in FSX, and 35 FPS in xplane. Poor example, but that's all I got off the top of my head
