I too was confused a bit after I learned enuf to realize I was confused

Presumably the client will stay 32 bit since it needs to be able to run in a 32 bit os for the linux unicore WU's.
As long as it can launch mpiexec and the 64 bit cores for smp, it doesn't matter how well it performs since it does so little work.
