microsoft will drop support for the OEM side's 32-bit version of the OS.,In other words, hardware manufacturers will no longer be offered 32-bit versions of Windows 10 for installation on their devices as of the next big update, and any future PC will have a 64-bit installation.

Windows 10 varieties come in both 32-bit and 64-bit. While they look and feel almost identical, the latter is benefitting from faster and better hardware specs. Microsoft is putting the lesser version of its operating system on the back burner, with the era of 32-bit processors winding down. Spotted by NeoWin in the system requirements for the upcoming Windows 10 May 2020 update, Microsoft states that, "Starting with Windows 10, version 2004, all new Windows 10 systems will be required to use 64-bit builds and Microsoft will no longer release 32-bit builds for OEM distribution."

This news doesn't mean Microsoft won't support 32-bit Windows 10 computers any more. Microsoft says it will keep updating the OS with new features and security patches, and will continue to sell it directly to consumers. That said, if you are still using a 32-bit processor, it may be time to upgrade - Windows 10 's weaker version has several limitations, such as RAM capping at 3.2 GB and less stringent security measures.
