is also a term given to a generation of
s in which 32-bit
s are the norm.
A 32-bit register can store 2
different values. The
values that can be stored in 32 bits is -2147483648 through 2147483647 (
: 0 through 4,294,967,295). Hence, a processor with 32-bit
es can directly access 4
The external address and data buses are often wider than 32 bits but both of these are stored and manipulated internally in the processor as 32-bit quantities. For example, the
processor is a 32-bit machine, but the external address bus is 36 bits wide, and the external data bus is 64 bits wide.
