According to this and other articles I have read your answer is no. It seems the 64 bit version has all the functionality and services found in SP-2 plus more.

Full article here.

Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) functionality: RC1 matches what's in Windows XP SP2, including the Security Center, Windows Firewall, Automatic Updates, and a security-enhanced version of IE 6.0 with Pop-up Blocker, active content monitor, and so forth.
Another article detailing it can be found here.

Consequently, RC1 is a vast improvement over previous beta releases, offering most of the functionality of today's 32-bit Windows XP Pro with Service Pack 2 (SP2), including the Security Center and pop-up blocking in Internet Explorer.
