Yes, I've been testing both 32 and 64 bit builds side by side. In fact Opera is the easiest browser to test multiple versions of simultaneously. Then Firefox though you have to really understand how profiles work with Firefox. Safari and IE require emulators, I haven't bothered with Chrome because the number of releases are just ridiculous. I regularly visit the Opera Desktop Team's blog and test builds. There are a few bugs such as the full file menu not working with the theme correctly though they are rather minor at least for me. Opera 12 halves the time to run on my site's benchmark. I haven't bothered to benchmark anything else though it is much faster. I'm running a 2.8 GHz AMD quad, 8GB of RAM (no wimpy pagefile) a Radeon 5770 and everything in Opera is responsive. I also blogged about Opera 12 yesterday and linked to a bunch of WebGL demos. Opera set up this site themselves...
My favorite demo is Emberwind. :)
