The 64bit version is about 5% faster rendering wise on my setup. The exe is slightly smaller but it uses more memory. The main selling point of 64 bit versions is the option to use the full system memory pool but LDCad isn't that hungry to begin with (I haven't seen it using more then 500MB unless you are loading really large models). So in the end it's just the 5% boost I guess Smile

64-bit versions are usually inherently more secure from malicious activity, since their 64-bit address space gives address space layout randomization a vastly bigger playground. For LDraw-base programs, this probably isn't a big deal.
