Re: What this numbers stand for...
For an accurate reply you'll need to quote a specific sentence or
paragraph where you see these symbols. You can also find information
with a web search.

Very broadly speaking, x86 and x64 typically refer to 32-bit and 64-bit
microprocessor architectures, respectively. I am not familiar with x32
in the context of computers - I believe x32 was a prototype fighter jet.

The Operating System, Windows, is calculated to suit the logic paths
provided by the hardware. The hardware paths constrict to 64 wide
in x64 microprocessors. They constrict to 32 wide in current x86
microprocessors. If you clicked on the x32 link you saw that it led
to either a jet or a piece of a circuit board. There really isn't any
x32 Windows - recently it's 32 bit x86 Windows. There used to be
16 bit x86 Windows. The design of the current 64 bit processors is
still fundamentally x86, but they're being called x64 and so is the
version of Windows made to enable you to tell the CPU what to do.
