          Hello HMIndia,


          All Intel® desktop processors are 32bit architecture; this means all Intel® processors are compatible with a 32bit operating system. Most of the newer processors have the support for a 64bit operating system by having a feature enabled called Intel® EM64T, which provides an extension in order to have the capability of supporting a 64 bit operating system and applications as well.


          When the website states "Intel® 64: yes" this means the 32bit architecture of the processor, has support for 64bit operating systems and applications due to the previous feature explained.


          Please let us know your processor model number or also, you can search for this information at: http://ark.intel.com/


          Then again, this will be specified under the “Intel® 64” field.

            all Intel desktop processors are 64-bit starting with the Core2Duo.
