I'm guessing cache.

Cache friendliness is one possible reason.

Another reason would be that in Java, memory of a multidimensional array are not allocated in a contiguous block, so new int[a][2] would create a small blocks of memory each contains a int[2]. In comparison with new int[2][a], that's a lot slower.

new int[2*a] should be faster (but also harder to read)
