Simple memory access.  Intel doesn't scale to 64 bits as cleanly as, say,
a sparcv9 64 bit binary vs sparcv8 32 bit.

int's, pointers, most resources consume 2x heap and stack, except of course

All this means you are falling out of L1, L2 cache out to memory pretty
regularly.  Pick some other applications, you should find similar results
on most any intel program, including 32 vs 64 bit jvm performance.
