It depends on the app.  Certain apps do better with more registers,
but Java can often be a bit slower because it's so object heavy (more
bigger pointers in every object means that less can fit in the L1
cache well, etc).

I could see a smart JVM trying to use 32 bit pointers in 64 bit
mode... but I don't know if anyone has done it.
