32 bit vs 64 bit FM Pro Advanced

With the new and exciting release of FileMaker 14 the option to install the 64 bit FM Pro client is now available.


Of course, some plug-ins are not 64 bit ready yet (Dacon's FileFire ), so it may not be an option just yet to go 64 bit.


What I'd like to know is: is there any real difference in FM14 on 32 bit vs 64 bit? Obviously 64 bit applications don't have the same memory limitations as 32 bit, and I am wondering if FM has really leveraged the additional performance gains in 64 bit?


It would be nice to have a reason to be motivated to move to 64 bit across the board, and performance is definitely a good motivator.


Look forward to your input.
