If a CPU can do PAE can it usually do 64bit? If that's the case we give a clear option, if your CPU is 64 bit capable you should install 64bit MX. PAE was introduced in 1995. The 64-bit AMD CPU was released 5 years later in 2000. Pentium-M processors released in 2003 were 32-bit with PAE. I think 3...
