Maybe so moo, in which case I think it ought to include that TF is significantly faster on a 64 bit capable processor (when running a 64 bit and prime95-supporting OS which for most people means Windows XP 64 Pro but there are others).

I wouldn't buy another 32 bit cpu. It could list which processors can do 64 bit and which can't. Also mention that it is possible now to run prime95 on the Intel-based macs if they are running XP.

That's true, but so far only AMD's x64 CPUs could show a significant speedup thanks to a fast integer division I suppose. This could also be true for NGMA, but it isn't the case for Prescott (with its high latency division routine thanks to the superpipelined architecture).
