64bit seems to provide about a 25-30% average boost on many things like DSP and compilation (compared to the same chip on 32bit OS), just due to additional general-purpose registers available for GCC to make use of...at least thats my general impression based on compile times, CPU meters, and similar results fron anandtech tests...
afaik the only disadvantage to using Pd on 64bit is soundfiles will not load...if im ever compelled to boot into linux again soon i'll take a look at it..
