Opera 33.0.1993.43 ? Is the latest version of Opera available in 32 and 64-bit versions?

  • Have just begun using new PC with 64-bit hw and Windows 7 64-bit o/s (so far behind the cutting edge I am in no danger I know) and after seeing the improved performance of other products in 64 versus previous experience with 32-bit flavors/versions e.g. MS Office 2016 64-bit and Google Chrome 64-bit I went to download the most current version of Opera, r.33 but I cannot tell if it is 32 or 64-bit -- since I had seen 64-bit Opera on a friend's PC, or thought I did, am confused?

    What I could find is the 64-bit version of the last of oempera or Opera 12.17.1863 is that all there is?

  • The latest version is Opera 32.0.1948.44 for Windows 10 64-bit.

  • I didn't think the current versions of Opera (I thought it was up to at least v. 33) had 64-bit versions yet. I've got v. Opera 32.0.1948.69, and it's 32-bit.

  • Here is a copy of my About Opera:

    Version: 32.0.1948.44 - Opera is up to date
    Update stream: Stable
    System: Windows 10 64-bit (WoW64)

    I think that means your operating system is Windows 10 64-bit, not that Opera is running as a 64-bit program on it.

  • The current version of Opera for Windows is only 32-bit. The last generation of Opera, Opera 12, did offer a 64-bit version. The current version of Opera would not benefit from a 64-bit version as much as the older version did. This is because the old Opera existed as a single process (and therefor might be limited to 4 GB of RAM, the most a single 32-bit process can handle without tricks) while the current version breaks each tab, extension, etc, out into its own process, each with its own 4 GB RAM limit. While there are other improvements a 64-bit version might see they aren't as significant to take away development time/effort from other things. I'm sure we'll see it someday but just rest assured you aren't missing much at the moment.

    As said there is no 64 bits version of Opera Blink for Windows.

    Exactly.
