Clusterd is faster because is order on objects is same on index and so is smaller on same reason, never mind you use it on integer or something other,

some from Books:

Using a clustered index to find data is almost always faster than using a nonclustered index. In addition, using a clustered index is advantageous when many rows with contiguous key values are being retrieved ¾ that is, on columns that are often searched for ranges of values.
