32 vs 64 opinions [Answered]
« on: March 28, 2014, 11:42:50 am »
Hello all fellow PepperMinters,

Since this forum is so active, and since I am enjoying the learning curve on the workings of Peppermint, and since this particular topic is not yet really going yet , here goes.

Is there any noticeable performance improvement from going to 64 bit from 32 bit of Peppermint 4 on the same netbook, in this case my Acer Aspire 1  D257-1417 with dual core Intel Atoms N570/1.66GHz and 2 GB RAM?

Any other information needed please ask.

Regards,
Ron

Short answer - Nope.

There might be a slight performance gain from using 64bit if you have more than 4Gb or RAM (PAE has a small measurable but not "noticeable" overhead) .. but not with 2Gb.
