Intel desktop processors all use 64-bit, is 32-bit possible? Answered

I am going to use an Intel i7 in a computer I'm helping design, and we have noticed something very strange. All Intel desktop processors, including the Core 2, use the 64-bit Intel Architecture. Do you think any of these would also support 32-bit? They must, because there are hundreds of Core 2's being sold every day, and they are usually 32-bit.

The Intel 64-bit processors will also run 32-bit code. (In fact, most of them spend most of their time doing so, unless you've explicitly loaded a 64-bit operating system.)

Okay, thanks. I thought so. Just thought I better make sure before I screw up all the plans lol.

Yeah, It's always better to get a second opinion, it always helps...
