Give it a try. It wouldn't hurt.I disagree with the assertion that the larger client size (which should be minimal) will make a big difference. The larger amount of memory you can access should more than make up for it."The 64-bit instructions take longer for your processor to read and decode than the 32-bit ones"This is false. All modern CPUs have native support for 64 bits and do not need any special decoding or extra steps for 64 bit instructions. The registers support 64 bits natively. They don't need to use SIMD unless it's 128 or 256 bits (and if you don't know what SIMD is, you probably shouldn't be making these assertions). Unless you're running a CPU older than the Pentium 4, this is simply not the case.
