Well, if this is on server-side processing, 700 msec along is dead slow, even service-stopping
slow for typical request processing. :-)

I mean, 1.5 transactions per second per core is two orders of magnitude from what most services
would want to see (at least ones I've worked with).
At least considering it's a cpu-intensive task not dependant on external resources.

Of course 0.7 seconds may be just fine for batch-processing or client-side. But for most web
services it'd be too slow.

As to platform differences, locking is one area where platform/OS does matter. So if and when
there are differences, that could explain it.
Otherwise it does seem odd indeed that cpu intensive task performance was asymmetrics between
linux and windows.
