4GB Vram on 32bit OS? - Page 3

post #21 of 25
64 bit doesn't need PAE as it can address a massive amount of memory natively.
Quote:
The Intel Itanium and x64 processor architectures can access more than 4 GB of physical memory natively and therefore do not provide the equivalent of PAE. PAE is used only by 32-bit versions of Windows running on x86-based systems.
Quote:
PAE is supported only on the following 32-bit versions of Windows running on x86-based systems:

Windows 7 (32 bit only)
Windows Server 2008 (32-bit only)
Windows Vista (32-bit only)
Windows Server 2003 (32-bit only)
Windows XP (32-bit only)

PontiacGTX, Microsoft has disabled access to memory above 4 GB in their non-server editions of Windows. That is one reason why it is not working for you :-)

That doesn't sound right to me.



The system also reported 6GB of RAM when I had Windows 7 64bit Home Premium running.
