    Is there a consensus on which is better for using with Parallels? Bootcamp?

    If all else is equal, is there any advantage either way?

    If you having a 64 bit OS, Then it doesn’t automatically make all applications faster because much of today’s software is written and optimised for a 32 bit era. You’ll need software specifically optimised for 64 bit processing to take advantage of any speed improvements. Also, Many games are already including such enhancements.
