you sure that directx11 will do its job with a 32bit client? i don't know but i guess that the directx11 technology is a bit more forward in time

also a 64 bit client will improve the performance thus far, that graphics will be fine for the time until the next step is done.

Yes please!
Take a pick: arguing by ignorance or arguing by confirming the arguments you find meaningless.

While I suppose that a 64-bit client isn't a bad thing...
What's the problem that it would be addressing (aside from nebulously, that 64 bits is the future)?

I'm on modern hardware--nothing insane, but decent. I get 50-80 FPS, depending on how much is going on and whether I'm in a warzone--again nothing insane, but decent.

It seems to me like if the game runs well as-is, and has the bonus of being 32 and 64 bit compatible, then why muck with it? I dunno, I like modernizing, but I don't know where the justification would be, really, with the game's current level of complexity. For 2.0, maybe?
I make useful, game-expanding suggestions.

You do not have enough problems with 32 bit client? Think again, please!
I like the idea, but not now.

.A 64-bit client vs a 32-bit client on high end systems is literally like a night and day difference. I have a computer that can run Battlefield 3 at pretty high settings and still maintain good framerate, why should this game not?

Aion Online at one point had some support for a 64-bit client when they released their version 2.5, and when I ran it on my computer, I could run their advanced graphics engine (they had two, a default and advanced one) with everything maxed at 70+ FPS. Compared to the 32 bit client where it struggled with the default engine, there was no contest as to which one was better.

If SWTOR added support for 64-bit clients, I guarantee you that performance issues that some deal with would be a thing of the past.

Bump for great justice. This game seriously needs a 64-bit client, because as it stands, there's no reason that a game with a much worse engine than games like Battlefield 3, Skyrim, Planetside 2, etc, runs worse than the aforementioned games in the framerate department.

I'm not understanding why they wouldn't, even now, make a 64 bit launcher. Windows 8 is appearing soon, which I'm assuming is 64 bit only. PLEASE RELEASE ONE, BIOWARE <3

I have windows 8 64-bit and I can run wow and gw2 on medium to high settings with 40-60 fps even in cities. This game, on full low settings (32-bit mind you) in a remote area on 25 fps.... Silly to me why they don't have a 64-bit
