Default PFGW GUI vs CMD

I'm using WINPFGW 3.7.10 for fermat testing.

When I use the GUI, the speed for each test is faster than if I run the same tests in CMD.

I would have thought that the CMD would be either as fast or faster.

Or am I wrong?

Run from the command window, pfgw will run at idle priority. Use -N to run at normal priority.
