I would put most photo-editing applications in the CPU bound category.

Some Mac information:

A .Net CLR developer thinks it isn't always faster:

SQL Server isn't always faster in 64-bit:

Visual Studio 2010 is 32-bit only because it doesn't gain enough from 64-bit:

Overall, a good 32-bit application running on a 64-bit OS is like using the Thumb instruction set with ARM - decreases code size, increases performance for most cases without much penalty. (The WOW64 penalty is 1-2%.)
