A P4 is a P4. Adding ES64M (extremely shiity 64 memory) will not turn it into a swan. It will still perform as well in 32 bit, but there is an off chance that, at some point, it will be able to do 64 bit also.

at this point, niehter platform can use 64bit effectively. if oyu had to break it down, at this tiem there is more support for amd64 as far as public windows betas and such, but that should evne out soon. performance is unknown for itnel right now, so we have to wait and see. most people belive there wont be any suprise by intel and dont expect anything great.
