I was wondering what the advised JVM architecture is for a 64bit Linux platform. I'm always using the 64bit JDK for the IDE. Because it seemed natural to me. Even knowing the pointer size is double compared to the 32bit JVM.
Untill today I ignored this also comes with a CPU performance impact. Unless using compressed pointers, etc, etc...
So, what performs better for IntelliJ ? 32- or 64 bit JVM's ?
