I have testetd it out, and 64Bit gimp is not faster than 32Bit gimp.
Yes, it uses just 2GB, but I never reached the 2GB border, and my Computer has
32GB RAM. I don't use GMic often, because it is very slow, even with 64Bit.
I made a video about GIMP 2.8 64-bit multitasking ability
In that video I ran one Python script that creates 700+ layers,
and while it was running I used (on other images, of course) 2 other C plugins and 4 scripts.
I'm trying to do this trick with 32-bit version of GIMP and it simply crashes.
For me, that is enough evidence of 64-bit version advantage.
