Native 64-bit Groundwater Vistas

I know that version 6 of Groundwater Visas is overdue and we are working hard on it. One new thing that will be in Version 6 is a native 64-bit release of our software. This release will have 2 distinct advantages: (1) access to lots of memory, and (2) speed. As a test I ran the benchmark simulation mentioned in my previous 2 posts on the i7-975 using a beta version of GV6-x64. It ran the simulation in 2 minutes 15 seconds or almost twice as fast as version 5 running in 32-bit mode. I think the combination of the i7, 64-bit Windows, and Groundwater Vistas x64 will be a huge step forward in simulation speed.
