you may also look at these data:

  1,225,416 bytes allocated in the heap
    152,984 bytes copied during GC (scavenged)
      8,448 bytes copied during GC (not scavenged)
     86,808 bytes maximum residency (1 sample(s))

          3 collections in generation 0 (  0.00s)
          1 collections in generation 1 (  0.00s)

if your hypothesis is true, amount of data copied and number of
generation-1 collection should be much less in the second case

Best regards,
