Better pray all your devices have PAE compatible drivers then.
PAE is an obsolete bodge. A sticking plaster for people stuck with
32-bit processors but who needed lots of RAM. Just be glad you have
64-bit capable processors nowadays so you don't ever need to use it.
The sooner it fades into history, the better.
