It was about future proofing against the inevitable shift from 32bit address spacing gaming on PC(limited to 2.7GB), to match 64bit address space gaming on next-gen consoles. Much like doubling RAM bandwidth for the CPU by going with LGA2011.Future proofing? Most processors have been 64bit for years now, I doubt anybody building a PC would chose a 32bit OS. Hell even OEMs (HP, Dell etc...) rarely install a 32bit OS on machines these days.
