The 64 bit exe and idstudio are still "in testing" and "weeks away". They've been saying that for 6 months.

From official forums, posted today:

"RAGE news isn't far off. The team is still finalizing the 64bit exe and level editor, and hoping to have more to share soon after."

They're going to release a 64bit version?! I had no idea.

Maybe this time the texture pop-in will be compltetely gone(?).

Last I read, Steam does not support 64 bit games because the Steam overlay is only 32. You can still run 64 bit games, but you won't get the steam overlay to work.

If Rage would start using RAM properly, it would not have to constantly stream textures from the slow HDD and would therefore drastically reduce texture pop-ins and increase performance, at least that is what I hope as Rage is not even using 1GB RAM on my system.

It made a huge difference to me, running with 16G DDR3. It ran like butter flowing off hot pancakes.

Really? I had good FPS with both 32 and 64, but I found that 64 bit created more stutter in both dx9 and dx10.

Last I read was that Steam has support for 64bit games. I assume this would be for the overlay at least.
