Physical address extension patch for Windows 8
What does this mean?
As the creator states:
This patch allows you to use more than 3/4GB of RAM on an x86 Windows system. Works on Vista, 7, 8, has been tested on Windows Vista SP2, Windows 7 SP0, Windows 7 SP1 and Windows 8 SP0. Instructions and source code included.
There is also another thing that you should be aware before installing this patch:
Before using this patch, make sure you have fully removed any other “RAM patches” you may have used. This patch does NOT enable test signing mode and does NOT add any watermarks.
Note: I do not offer any support for this. If this did not work for you, either:
- You cannot follow instructions correctly, or
- You cannot use more than 4GB of physical memory on 32-bit Windows due to hardware/software conflicts.
As a conclusion this patch is very useful since there is allot of 32 bits applications and the necessity of switching to a 64 bit operating system is not sustained. Is known that a 32 bit operating system consumes less RAM memory and since is more older it is more stable and more responsive.
