Re: [opensuse] 64 bit vs 32 bit RAM consumption

I found quite a bit of mention
of 64 bit apps using twice as much RAM? Is this true?

It uses 64 bit pointers which require twice as much space, so yeah it is likely that some programs will use a lot more ram.

There is something called "x32 abi" , which is an x86_64 implementation with 32 bit pointers, so far, no distribution has been released officially using this ABI model.

AFAIK we have no plans to release such distribution port either, things might change in the future though.
