A 64-bit application running in a 64-bit OS can be significantly faster.... depending on the application and work. If you're running complex mathematical models with large floating numbers, 64-bit is going to help big time. 64-bit IE is not noticeably faster than 32-bit IE for a single window.

There are not that many (relatively) optimization under the hood as that would cause the code base to branch.
