[PD] Academic question about AMD64 and audio

I have a purely academic question stemming from an accidental install on 
my part:
Will my AMD64 laptop run PD and other sound apps (using mingo's RT 
patched kernels) faster in native 64-bit linux or faster as a 
conventional 32-bit linux?

I ask this because I am about to install the "correct" 64-bit linux but 
I will then have array problems and other PD errors that have not yet 
been solved... So if my machine is faster in 64 -bit linux the 
shortcommings of 64-bit PD are outweighed by the speed gain.

Thanks all!
