can i3-3110m work with a 32-bit os?

Hi All,

I am a new comer here, and come with a question that bothers me.

From what i understand, any CPU that supports 64-bit instruction set, should support 32-bit one too, yet the following made me confused:

Thank you for any inputs.

    Hi
    Short :
    Yes it can.

    Long:
    All CPU system have walked this OS calculations way .....
    8 bit
    16 bit
    32 bit
    64 bit

    SO the modern CPU`s are able to run 32 bit OS and Programs and also 64 bit OS and Programs
    If there is a 64 bit Instruction set support from the CPU it is 100% backward compatible wit 32 bit systems !
    Of course i`m focusing over Windows Platforms here - but there are many different Platforms that have some exclusions from the state above :)
    I hope this light a bit the question here :)

    And about the link - it have WRONG DETAILS THERE - here you can check for correct ones :

    Details
    Architecture x86-64

    here aslo :

    BTW - it`s odd that on the Intel web they only shows the x64 bit support :)
    But i`m pretty sure it does support x86
