I run some benchmarks on Ubuntu VPS with Hyper-V. The CPU is i7-6700K.
With 1 virtual processor and 8Gb ram I get the best results (26,5 - Avg Time Solve Equihash 10)
With 4 processors and 8Gb ram it get little worse (28,3)
With 8 processors and 8Gb ram it gets even more worse (31).
Is this normal? If yes - does it means that it is better for mining zcash to run 8 VPS with single virtual processor than one VPS with 8 processors?
