    Anyone benched a A64 rig with both XP and XP64?

    I'm curious if anyone built a A64 rig and then benched it with both Windows XP and the beta 64 OS. Wondering how much of a difference it would make on standard benchies like Sandra.

    I've benched them both with the 32-bit version of sandra. Difference was well under 0.1%.

    The free 64-bit version of sandra is finally out, but I'm not going to reformat my computer just to test it.

    Thanks for the link. Looks like there was a 15% boost in media encoding which is main usage for my PC. I got an XP64 CD last month and was wondering if it would be worth it. Looks like it will definately be worth it. Thanks again.

    Well, from what I have read, the only problem with gaming is drivers being used. I guess ATI an Nvidia really aren't too concerned about 64 bit drivers as of yet.

    I just installed 64 bit windows and there really doesn't seem to much out there that will take advantage of it. I still cannot find any audio drivers, so I may just resort to 32 bit until more is available.

    Fun to play with though...
