Folding rates

I've noticed that my two rigs fold at really different rates. They both run at almost the same speed, but the slower one will often appear to be folding much faster. Eg, they have both recently started a 500 point WU at the same time (+-5min), but the slower one is already at 360/500 and the faster one is only at 75/500??
I take it the WU's are not made all the same?

Do they both use SSE??
And what are the names of the WU's?

I'll post the log for the "slower" rig next.

The first one is a 53.3 pointer, the second log is for an 11.5 pointer, so it is only natural that one of them takes a lot longer to fold.

You can see all the units and their credit calues here:
