Raspberry Pi OS 64-bit 與 32-bit 的效能差異

前幾天提過「Raspberry Pi OS 64-bit 版本正式推出」,而 Phoronix 實際拿正式版測試 64-bit 與 32-bit 的系統差異了,在「Raspberry Pi OS 32-bit vs. 64-bit Performance」這邊可以看到每一個測試項目的結果。

測試的硬體是 Raspberry Pi 400,這台機器基本上就是 4GB 版本的 Raspberry Pi 4 加上週邊配件:

Using a Raspberry Pi 400 keyboard computer with 4GB of RAM, I ran some fresh benchmarks of Raspberry Pi OS in its default 32-bit build and then again with the new 64-bit build.

先講結果,在 Phoronix 的 33 個測試裡面,64-bit 全部都比 32-bit 好,而且是很明顯的差異:

Across the few dozen different workloads tested, switching Raspberry Pi OS 11 for the 64-bit version improved the performance on average by about 48%. See all the 32-bit vs. 64-bit Raspberry Pi benchmarks over on OpenBenchmarking.org.

之前 64-bit OS 還在 beta 的時候就已經知道這個情況了,所以不會覺得太意外。當時提出的解釋是指令集的差異,aarch64 提供的指令集比 armv6 有效率多了,這點在 2016 年的文章「64-bit ARM (Aarch64) Instructions Boost Performance by 15 to 30% Compared to 32-bit ARM (Aarch32) Instructions」這邊可以看到說明。

所以正式版出來以後,只要硬體有支援,基本上都建議裝 64-bit OS 了...
