And if you have never seen a single piece of software run slower in 64 bit mode than 32 bit mode, just go as far as bzip2. I never said it is common but it does exist.
As for what you call "the new processor commands", do you have any idea what you are talking about? Like "sit" and "play dead"?
Is this a zoo?
You people don't deserve a new driver.
Strange that they would design a whole brand new chip, based on a new architecture mind you, and never bother to optimise the chip by adding new optimised processor commands.... Oh wait.. they did add new optimizations. Therefore don't try to come off all educated, you are embarresing yourself.
