Not faster, but the RAM abilities should start mattering fairly soon I think. I've got Vista 64 on my machine now. The machines fast so it's not too much of a problem, but Vista is a hog. 4 Gigs of Ram though, so it handles pretty much everything I throw at it. I do a lot of 3d modeling, and it gets useful there.

64 bit is just a hair slower, atleast on Vista 32 vs 64. Some overhead.

As mentioned it's about memory usage and being able to disable streaming for less loading off the drive.

Oh and it will ship with 64 bit, confirmed by Crytek. On 64 bit Os's you'll get an additional bin64 folder about 40-50 MB uncompressed on the HD.

I wouldn't expect there to much of an advantage of running this on a 64-bit OS vs a 32-bit OS, benchmark wise. In fact, I'd expect to see Vista 64-bit get slower performance vs Win XP 32-bit (just because Vista adds more overhead).

I won't even think about gaming on a 64-bit OS until I see a major performance boost of a game like Crysis on 64-bit Vista with 4 or more GB or RAM vs Windows XP with lets say 3GB of RAM. The RAM limitations of a 32-bit OS are going to be the major reason to upgrade.

I'll let you know as soon as my copy shows up. I have Vista64 dual booted with XP32 all together with 4 gig of RAM installed.

I would like to see some comparison in between using let's say a 32bit vs a 64bit OS. As far as framerate goes. This game is a hog. Unless you have a quad core with 2x8800GTX or GT in SLI forget about highest settings in details.

If you'll remember FarCry, they provided 64 bit support via a patch that was released at a later date.

Why wouldn't it be? The actual executable is pretty damn small compared to all the resource files.

Here's wondering if the 64 bit version of the game is shipped on the same DVD...
