It's not about the number of destinations but how many instructions a renamer can handle. If you crack early then its needs to rename more microops, so it's slower. Unless you make it wider (but you'd need at least 2x the width to handle a sequence of cracked micro-ops). In both cases it has lower instruction throughout for its width.
