BPI-M3 vs M64 – best performance for running Ubuntu Mate ?

Which BPI is more capable for running Ubuntu Mate (to eventually run a headless PlesMediaServer plus Airsonic music server plus low demand NAS?

Eight cores means more simultaneous threads and a higher proc GHz speed… but only 32bit??

64bit proc running at a slower speed with fewer cores feels more ‘future-proof’ – but would it be faster for running the desktop (for the purposes of setup/vnc to machine for administration), and would there be any significant advantage over the faster 8 core processor? Seems like not likely, but what am i missing?
