In computer architecture, 32-bit integers, memory addresses, or other data units are those that are at most 32 bits wide. Also, 32-bit CPU and ALU architectures are those that are based on registers, address buses, or data buses of that size. 32-bit is also a term given to a generation of microcomputers in which 32-bit microprocessors are the norm. A 32-bit register can store 2³² different values. The signed range of integer values that can be stored in 32 bits is -2147483648 through 2147483647. Hence, a processor with 32-bit memory addresses can directly access 4 GiB of byte-addressable memory. The external address and data buses are often wider than 32 bits but both of these are stored and manipulated internally in the processor as 32-bit quantities. For example, the Pentium Pro processor is a 32-bit machine, but the external address bus is 36 bits wide, and the external data bus is 64 bits wide.
