I have yet to see any benchmark giving advantage to do so, but it
would be good to know

Unfortunately, I can't provide any benchmarks as I always[0] install
64bit, not 32bit, distros on my 64bit hardware. What I can say is that
I've not had any issues that couldn't be fixed while running the various
64bit versions of openSUSE.

[0] I did once install the 32bit version of 10.0 on one of the systems
that's now running 64bit 10.3. The idea at the time was to dual-boot
between the 32 and 64 bit systems because I didn't have the available
hardware to run both versions on separate hardware. However, I didn't
actually follow through with that idea as I acquired another 32bit
system and so no longer had the need to dual-boot.
