Windows 7: What if the rams limitation was removed from x86?

What if the rams limitation was removed from x86?

Hello there,

I found a tool on the internet that could remove the ram limitation of the x86 versions of windows vista and 7, but I was wondering, would that affect the performance of the x86 apps at all? I mean, the x86 are designed to get full use of only 3.25G of the ram, so what's the point of the x86 windows being able to use more ram if that's true? unless that's not true and I'm totally wrong..

Will be waiting for your inputs.

How much RAM are you talking about?
I think even with software modifing WIN7 is not the only issues.
You have to think about your MB chipset and BIO limits.
Adding more still doesn't make things run better or faster if your hadware can't keep up. Unless you are planning very large video editing I would't waste the time and if you are a gamer I still don't seeit as a positive.

My 2 cents.
Have a great day!

From what little I know about why 32x cant use the 4g of ram, (hardware addressing?) I dont know if this program is really going to do that....If you are going to try and use it, be wary and scan it with an anti-virus program. Is there a company website for the program?

It is probably the hoax that "extends" the address space to 34 bits. But that's not going to do anything for you.

Well, I'm not gonna try it, I just wanted to see if there was any benefit from doing it.

The patches for windows Vista and 7 are attached, I scanned with MSE and it found nothing but few people from where I got the patches from said that it might contain viruses..

Scan it with whatever makes you tik..

i've read a lot of reviews on a similar software and essentially all it does is allows more ram to show up in 32 bit windows. it doesn't actually make that extra ram usable.

Right, it is just an additional way to muck up your system.
