Benchmarking is very difficult when more than one variable changes and
also when the test itself necessarily involves several aspects of
system performance.

The difference could be due to a kernel regression, it could be
increased synchronisation overhead for 6 cores, etc, etc. It could be
some combination of the above factors.
