Your 5520 seems to be much faster than mine - assuming that you haven't OC'ed it, the cause must be that this application profits from x64 native code.

So on the long run, x64 apps for Linux and Windows might be quite useful.

For MinGW/GCC there is an installation that can cross-compile x64 apps from x86 windozes, Linux GCC should be able to do that anyway.

I compiled the windows app on the same machine I compiled the OS X app -- it's dual booted. I was using visual studio however. I could try and fiddle around with it to see if I can get an x86_64 version for windows as well.

An x64 win app would be very much appreciated (assuming there is a speed advantage)!

I think it does. The 32 bit OS X app is quite a bit slower as well. I just need to figure out how to get visual studio to compile an x64 version for windows... and windows and I don't seem to get along very well. :P

The link is how to compile autodock as a native x64.But might be helpful.

I'm using two 64-bit Windows Vista computers. Does it look like any of the compile steps need to be run under a 64-bit version of Windows?
