  • Performance test 32 bit vs 64 bit

    I have 2 PC's. One is a 32 bit PC running Windows XP 32 bit OS and the other is a 64 bit PC running Windows XP 64 bit OS. I want to buy the new Performance test 7.0 build 1013 and I have two questions.

    1. Do I have to buy both of the 32 bit and 64 bit versions to test both of these PC's?

    2. If the answer to question 1 is that the 64 bit version will also successfully test a 32 bit system, will it produce the same results for a 32 bit system as the 32 bit version would?

    The same license key works in 32bit and 64bit. So you don't need to purchase the software twice to use 32bit & 64bit.

    You can not however run the 64bit software on a 32bit machine.

    The 64bit release will produce slightly higher results when run on a 64bit O/S
