The latter machine is running a single virtual machine, but the former is running no VMs of any kind and has still turned a gigabyte into transpages (probably largely inside monsters like Chromium). That's not insignificant. (For that matter, I routinely see compile jobs getting hugepaged up, and a TLB saving in a pointer-mad monster like GCC really does speed it up. Sure, it's only a few percent, but that's better than nothing, right?)
