64 - Bit Slackware Performance

Ok. Please don't take this post the wrong way and turn this into an argument thread over 64-bit vs. 32-bit, SW and BW and anything else. What I 'd like to know is if any one has any concrete evidence (sw benchmark data, hw sensor data, battery times, etc) that shows a gain in performance on their rig between slack and BlueWhite?

If you do, I'd love to see it because this question fascinates me.

Hi there

Here are a few benchmarks that I have done:

But, the best is to install BW64 in to a spare partition and see how it performs for you. Then you can see if is OK or not. Try the 12.2, others and I noticed some speed. Try it .
