Moreover, AES-256 is 20-ish percent slower than AES-128.
Compared to AES-128, AES-256 is 140% of the rounds to encrypt 200% as much data. So when implemented in hardware, AES-256 is substantially faster.

AES-256 - 18.26 bits per round
AES-128 - 12.8 bits per round

I imagine that this would matter when the implementation is in a hard disk or disk interface.
