What was tested is a 32 bit OS environment on a 32 bit core processor. This isn't taking advantage of multiprocessing. I wonder if there is a difference in performance.
One can make the argument that a 32bit processor on a 32 bit machine should not have a decrease in performance. But, what if there is an increase in performance between 7.04 to 8.10 by the advent using multiprocessing if those applications use this advantage.
