32 or 64 bit ODBC for niku?

Hi all.

   Doing some housekeeping on our way to 14.3.

 

   We're currently on 13.2, Win 2008 64bit against MSSQL 2012 EE 64bit. I observe that the niku ODBC connection on all servers are the 32 bit ODBC connectors - this was required for Business Objects, but as we leave Business Objects behind - should we move to the 64 bit connectors?

 

   From the 13.2 documentation:

Although there's no mention of 32 v 64 bit, *if* on a 64 Bit server the click path will give you a 64 bit ODBC (you actually have to run odbcad32.exe to get the 32 bit Data Source Administrator).

 

Is there any performance difference between the 32 & 64 bit ODBC connectors? Should I migrate to the 64 bit connectors?
