Author Topic: Benefits - 64 Bit Over 32 Bit  (Read 2045 times)

I have 2 PC's that are running 64 bit AMD's, I was just wondering what exactly are the main benefits of installing Pardus 64 versus 32? I know there are some pisi packages not yet available for 64 (wine) but are we talking a noticeable speed boost, for like file transfers and just overall system responsiveness? I have read some things on the net, some tied to Ubuntu, that suggest that 64 bit installs are not really beneficial overall - and that may be tied to 64 bit packages not running as smoothly as 32's.

Some opinions please  Smiley

I started with 32 bit Pardus and then installed 64 bit, which I'm running now. I haven't measured anything but I really can't see a difference in performance. I have less than 4 Gigs of RAM though too. If you have over 4 Gigs, any differences might be more noticeable.

I'm running 2 gig on the x2 and 6 on the quad core. I had 64 bit on the quad and went to 32 and noticed no real diff short term, but have not done enough to make an accurate judgment. I was going to put 64 on the x2, thought it would benefit my large amounts of data being copied.

I have not noticed any real difference in 32/64 with any of the various distros.  This is the argument that the guys who only have 32 bit versions use.  They may be right, but are under heavy pressure to produce a 64.

The new 64s say those smoothness problems have been fixed for a while now and that you should use it if you can.

I've used both 32-bit and 64-bit and I haven't noticed any big differences between the two. Some programs however, like Google Earth and others don't work for me on the 64-bit Pardus, so I'm sticking with 32-bit until they get the bugs out or some better packages are built.

Performance wise, there really isn't any difference, if anything, it feels like 32-bit is a bit snappier, but I haven't done any benchmarks.

I fully agree with this.
I need both of them in order to build PiSi packages for both systems.

Thanks All for your input!! I'll be using the 32 Bit version due to package availability / stability  Smiley

The United States is still under "War Time", that is how Daylight Savings time originated, we started this back in WWII and never changed the law.... I wish they would though. Sad

I personally prefer summer time because it is longer bright!
If somebody will ask me they can keep summer time also in winter  Grin

I really don't mind either in and of themselves. It's the changing that my body doesn't like especially when it's from ST to DST.

Same here... It does me in for weeks  Sad   If I had a choice though, like SW, it would be DST all year through.

With all due respect to The Register, the author is just plain wrong on this question.  You will notice a real performance difference with a 64-bit OS if you do some very resource intensive processing.  For example, 3D video rendering is one area where you can really see a difference.  This is why many gamers as well as many artists demand 64-bit.  I notice building pisi packages was mentioned.  Some compilations do run faster, others don't.

It really depends on what you are using your computer for.   If you mainly do casual web browsing, e-mail and the like you won't see a difference.
