This is no surprise. Prime95 is memory bottlenecked so the dual channel giving doubled memory bandwidth is huge.

Interestingly enough, the bottleneck only shows itself with more workers. A single one isn't enough to bottleneck you.

Note that the throughput is almost EXACTLY double with four workers with double the bandwidth, but even at 3 workers, there's a slight discrepancy. It means that your fourth worker, at those speeds, isn't actually giving you much more throughput.
