The difference was not just in some apps, it was in all. Login was faster. Bash ran faster.
Well, I decided to run a couple of tests myself. From what I learned, optimising for athlon-xp (or i686) instead of i386 will get you around 15% performance boost with processing multimedia content, but for amd64 it's not worth it.

Full results.
