x32-ABI is an application binary interface, which has been introduced in Linux kernel 3.4. This interface bases on the x86-64 instruction set but uses 32-bit as size for pointers and C-datatype long instead of 64-bit. Thus software can profit from lower memory footprint but also form faster system calls. Several Root-benchmarks have been evaluated in this context and results regarding memory consumption and CPU-time will be shown.
