If you have to add 2 and 3 it will take the same time on both archs. 64
bit is not faster, it is larger. Compare a road truck of 6 wheels to
another of 12 wheels and double length.

Huh? That doesn't make sense to me?
Can you explain it it detail - and drop the analogy.

Give op-code example. Doesn't have to be from a real machine, just hypothetical.


No, I will not bother. If you don't understand it, I will not bother to explain.
