On 32-bits systems, SuperClassic will be the first to run out of memory under high load. Superserver, with its shared cache space, and Classic, with its separate processes, perform better there.[...]

This means, that you might hit the max. adressable RAM for a 32-bit
process more easily.

The good thing with Embedded and SuperClassic is, that it can take
advantage of multiple CPUs/Core.

No, there isn't.
