That is useful. How consistent are the results people are getting though? When
I run with 1M messages the results are generally very flakey, 2, 4, 6 seconds 
between different runs. If I use 10M then due to the far longer run time then 
the differences are will 2 to 6 seconds but the run time is a whole order of 
magnitude different give a different picture.

Will try and find an hour to run the tests with this CPU selection code.
