Ubuntu 32-bit, 32-bit PAE, 64-bit Kernel Benchmarks
The OpenMP-powered GraphicsMagick test sped up by nearly 40% with the 64-bit kernel, but the PAE kernel caused no performance change in either direction.
For looking at the computational biology performance, we looked at MAFFT and found it to also perform best under the 64-bit kernel while the 32-bit PAE kernel did not end up having any impact in this CPU-focused test.
With the Blowfish performance as measured by John The Ripper, the 64-bit kernel had a 54% speed advantage.
