Codegen mex file slower than normal matlab?

Subject: Codegen mex file slower than normal matlab?

I've seen this before when certain functions are used that matlab is natively good at, but this one seemed like a slam dunk. I have a script that has to do many, many RSS computations of two variables:

out = sqrt(in1^2 + in2^2)

I had a little function to do this and I converted it to mex using the matlab coder. The result was that the mex version took almost exactly twice as long (to do 1 million RSSs using tic/toc).

Why would this be? Is there overhead getting into mex or something?
