Do we really know what these timedemos are doing? I've always thought that software rendering tests were worthless when you use your GPU to render in the real application...

Maybe an OS related thread is taking up the 3rd or 4th core. Would there be more OS stress if an application is using CPU/Mem vs a dedicated GPU render?
