Hi

I was just wondering if celeron d processors support emt 64 because I have downloaded lavalys everest home edition and it says that it has support for emt 64 extension.

Does this mean that my computer can support 64 bit applications or is it a mistake and my computer doesn't support it.

I would appreciate a reply and please can someone tell me a bit more about emt 64 and what it does.

Thanks

Hi morfius,
The technology you are referring to is called EM64T (Intel Extended Memory 64 Technology) not EMT64.

Any yes, some models of CeleronD do support EM64T; if EVEREST says your processor does, that means your CeleronD has EM64T.

The EM64T is a technology that extends a processor's memory model to 64-bit.
64-bit addressing will allow your main memory(RAM+virtual memory) to go up to 1 TB(tetrabyte) compared to only 4GB in 32-bit addressing on 32-bit processors.

To take advantage of EM64T you need a 64-bit Operating System like Windows XP 64-bit.

thanks darth_ash for your reply.

Does that mean my computer can support 64 bit applications and if so do I need windows xp 64 bit edition or will normal xp run these apps in 64 bit.

In 64 bit are there twice as many colours as there are in 32 bit?

Yes your PC can support 64-bit apps; but you will need a 64-bit Operating System like Windows XP 64-bit, to fully utilize it.
Though I would'nt suggest and upgrade to it, beacause 64-bit software is still pre-mature and is quite unstable. You could download the trial for WinXP64 from the link Emery Herman has given and give it a try.

In 64 bit are there twice as many colours as there are in 32 bit?

64-bit OS and processors have nothing to do with the size of color codes.
It will in general increase your PCs performance.
