Does 64 bit linux use more ram than 32 bit?

May 23, 2013 5.5k views
Simple question, find many different answers/opinions on Google. Does a 64 bit Linus OS(ubuntu specifically) use more ram than 32 bit version? My droplet is only the 512 so I just want to know if I'm wasting ram by using 64bit.

I suggest you go with 64-bit.

Is this still the same answer for 16.04 32 or 64 bit on 512 ram full server ubuntu with cms domain systems like virtualmin?
