Start64!Okay so when it comes to calculation and that too at 64bit datatype calculation, we should always generate x64 architecture binary if your system supports. But before going to the exact experiment, I would  like to introduce to the terms x86 and x64.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IA-32 – IA-32, Intel’s 32-bit architecture.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X86-64 – Read more about x86-64 here.

Experiment:
The experiment includes various arithmetical and logical operations (more than 10^5 operations) on 64bit data types (long long int AND double)
