335d vs 335i

I read that the turbos on the diesel not only are not twin sized but are in series with one another. In fact, it said that after 2500 rpm, the initial smaller turbo does nothing at all.

So why is this a more effective setup on a turbo diesel vs the turbo gas which has independent twin turbos?

Sorry if this has been discussed before.
