Debian supports the maximum supported by the hardware. That means from
the top of my head:

i386: 64G
amd64: 1TiB
mips: 512M (mips32 cpu), 1TiB? rest
alpha: 1TiB

Point is that if you can put the ram into your mainboard then Debian
will support it. As such you should look to your hardware vendor for
how much ram their boards support.
