It's not x86_64 per se, but 64-bit binaries are larger then 32-bit ones.
Also, you may have several earlier kernels already installed in /boot.
If so, trying removing some (leave at least one as a backup of course)
and try again.

Also, check the archives of this list where space problems with
preupgrade have been discussed before. Around the release date of F13
would probably be a good place to start looking.
