Ubuntu: why is my ubuntu 16.04 32 bit fresh install painfully slow?


I have intel core i3 with 4GB ram and 2.4Ghz machine. Previously i was using Windows 10 to run Android Studio. But as its license experied i switched to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS 32 bit. But unfortunately its lagging very much for simple task only. I don't know what will happen if I start using Android Studio :( Also do i need to upgrade to 64 bit? Or switch to any lower versions of Ubuntu like 14.04LTS? Or switch to Windows again. Specs--

  • Os : Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
  • RAM : 3.8 GiB
  • Processor : Intel Core i3-3110M CPU @ 2.4GHz x 4
  • Graphics : Intel ivybridge Mobile x86/MMX/SSE2
  • OS type : 32-bit
  • Disk : 488.1 GB

Please let me know if anyone faced similar problem. Also any further clarification needed to this question? For graphic card detail i got this information from my system


After using 64-bit os and Nvidia Proprietary driver my system is working great :) Thank you @dobey and @JonasCz for such a in depth information and help. And i am adding this line just to complete minimum word limit to answer on StackExchange.
