I'd think it would be if you had a full 64 bit algorithm, and at any rate when in full 64 bit mode, it has twice as much data registers for the stuff.
(x86 has 8, x86-64 has 16)
So while 32 to 64 bit may not be by itself significant, along with everything else changed in the architecture, I'd say it certainly is.

(If my terms are off, I'll edit the post later...can't download the tech docs right now)
