Doesn't seem like much of a difference at this point. I think i'm gonna have to buy better ram and overclock this amd64 if i see a drop in proformance when win64 is released. I'm not really not going to worry about it at this point in time.

AMD64 2800+
MSI Neo-Fis2r

Sapphire 9800pro 128mb

well they didn't test for games that have 64 bit coding for them. The only one I know so far is Far Cry.

Which it should help out alittle bit there.

Beta OS with Beta drivers, 32 bit games running in a beta 64 bit environment.....i dont think these benches mean anything at all. Not sure why they even bothered to write this article.

true, its a bit premature, but I'm guessing its more of drivrs thing cuause WarCraft 3 performed better and it much more cpu intesive. Anyone know if this game was optimized for 64 bit?

um

so they have a 64bit version of UT2004, and they used the 32bit version to test the 64bit windows? that makes sense!

hard to say, its just a different dll for the engine. Let me check, I didn't notice a specific dll for amd 64 :/. I haven't updated ut 2004 though.
