-GAMS is available in a 32 bit and a 64 bit version for Windows. The 64 bit version requires the presence of a 64 bit version of Windows to operate properly - just having a 64 bit processor is not sufficient. The 32 bit version of GAMS will work on both versions of Windows, but the operating system limits the GAMS process to ~ 1.7 GB (Windows 32 Bit) or ~ 4 GB (Windows 64 Bit).

-In general, you should not expect a performance improvement from the 64 bit version. The benefit will be in being able to solve larger models. Please note that the 64bit version of GAMS may require up to 35% more RAM than the 32 bit version. Sometimes it may be advantageously ​ to run the 32 bit version of GAMS on a 64 bit version of the operating system. ​
