Pointless is strong and inaccurate. But the argument is not completely off base. It is also a difficult one to either support or refute. If you put aside the issue of addressable memory, one can improve performance in a plethora of ways without stepping up to 64-bit processing. That does not come close to implying that 64-bit computing is gimmicky, but it does explain in part why some jumped to that conclusion.
