For a Windows 7 system. Is EnSight10 written in 64 bit or just runs on a 64 bit system?

For a Windows 7 system. Is EnSight10 written in 64 bit, or a 32  bit program that runs on a 64 bit system? If there is a 64 bit program what are the advantages over the 32 bit version?

On Windows, EnSight starting with 9.0 is built both 32bit and 64bit (all installation pacakages include both 32 and 64bit binaries).  On a 64bit Windows system (XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8), we will run the 64bit version by default.  The 64bit version includes support for large amounts of RAM (>2GB) and in most tests runs 10-20% faster than the 32bit version (actual performance gains vary by the specific operations).
