Re: [opensuse] 64 bit vs 32 bit RAM consumption [summary]
On 2013-07-24 12:43 (GMT-0400) Andrey Borzenkov composed:

There is memory range below 4G which is reserved for PCI address
mapping. Size can be quite significant - if you are using 32 bit system
you can lose as much as (or even over) 1G of your memory.

My experience is that reserved space is much closer to negligible:

So I'd say
- as long as you have over 2G of physical RAM having 64 but kernel makes
all sort of sense.

As does 32 up through 4GB, again, depending on primary usage.
