I suppose similar to X86-64, with aarch64 the speed advantage vs 32 bit 
is debatable.

Some applications that really do 64 bit calculation might get a lot faster

Some applications that use loops with a large code footprint might get 
slower, as the 64 bit code might be bigger and hence more cache loads 
might be necessary.
