Sorry for the delay in answering.  It's indeed a known issue that the
ppa.launchpad.net has a 32-bit binary even though it pretends to be a
64-bit one :-/

Please tell us if, using a real 64-bit pypy like the one from our
download page, you still have a much higher memory usage than CPython.
 And also note again that our current GCs do not perform well when the
process is swapping, so it might be much slower than CPython...

A bientôt,
