It:

1- Allows you to render with higher bit depth. This reduces rounding error during rendering. When passing the values between filters, 32-bit values are passed instead of 8-bit values.

It also lets you do linear light compositing (though some of those things are possible with 8-bit):

If you have banding issues with your renders, rendering in 32-bit might solve it.

2- There are some gotchas with 32-bit. Some codecs behave differently in 32-bit mode versus 8-bit mode.
