So what's faster now? Vivaldi 32 or 64 bits?



  • It seems that Vivaldi 64 bits consumes more RAM, but if it doesn't give any speed benefit, then what's the point?





  • So why did you purchase a 64bit processor? If you have a 64bit processor then it makes sense to use 64bit software. All I can say is that it's a good job there isn't a 128bit processor else it wouldn't be worth owning it for twenty years till the backward crowd caught up. I remember back in the day when we only had 8bit and couldn't wait for 16bit and believe me when it came we utilized it to its maximum, now people stay in limbo land.



  • On that note, every snapshot shows 32-bit as "(recommended)", and doesn't say anything for 64-bit. Is 64-bit still experimental or what? And will it ever be ready for use just like 32-bit is?



  • I cant remember when was the last time I has windows 32

    Running windows 10 64x with Vivaldi 64x and everything is just Fine

    Fast a good BUT the Question is what is Fast for you ?



  • Run a test like PeaceKeeper on both 32-bit and 64-bit versions and see if there's any difference. In previous versions I found the 64-bit version was slower.

    1.1.443.3 (Developer Build) (64-bit) = 3038 and 7/7
    1.1.443.3 (Developer Build) (32-bit) = 3067 and 7/7

    The latest build is slower than either. Go figure!

    1.3.551.28 (Developer Build) (32-bit) = 2784 and 7/7

    Forget Peacekeeper or any other browser benchmarks! I used to be one for going by these benchmarks but in the real world things are far different. I would find variants of Firefox which would be far faster than Opera on these benchmarks but in the real world those browsers were no where near as good or well performing. Peacekeeper is also out-of-date so choose other benchmarking software in the future.



  • @browserking:

    It really doesn't matter how out of date the benchmark is. A side-by-side comparison of 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the same browser will reveal any significant difference in performance.



  • I found months ago that when I switched from 64-bit to 32-bit Vivaldi, that the browser did feel a little bit faster. That's been my experience, and quite a few others.
