The exponent size also has an effect on how long it will take to complete a test. And often a single worker will be the one to suffer when the computer is doing other things.

yup other processes and the operating system take up different amount of each core so they are not equal in throughput. on my quad usually worker #2 (core 1) is fastest and worker #1 or #4 (cores 0 or 3) is slowest, but it's not always consistent.
