Does 64 bit SQL require AWE setting for the buffer to reach all of the memory range?

Thanks

No.
In fact:

"AWE is not required and cannot be configured on 64-bit operating systems."

Hold on here...AWE IS used...but it does it regardless of if you set it or not.  The reason?  SQL wants to use extra memory so that it can lock these pages in memory.
