They are likely going to be using PAE (Physical Address Extension) which would allow for more ram to be utilized even in a 32 bit environment.

x86 is an instruction set, not a data depth. It is available in both 32 bit and 64 bit, with AMD Jaguar chips being 64 bit.

It supports vastly larger amounts of virtual memory and physical memory than is possible on its predecessors, allowing programs to store larger amounts of data in memory. x86-64 also provides 64-bit general purpose registers and numerous other enhancements"
