Rx benchmark shows better CPU but slower rendering results

Would someone be able to explain my home desktop vs work machine Rx results?

this are my workstation results:

It's i7-4790k, quadro k5200 and 32gb ddr3.


And those are results of my new home desktop:

I have i7-6700k, gtx 960 and 16gb ddr4.


Now I know why graphics is such a big difference - quadro vs gtx.


But can't understand why rendering is almost 2times slower. I always tought that rendering in SW PW360 is only based on CPU - and I can clearly see that my cpu is better (not much).

So why is rendering time that much of a difference - does the graphic card help in rendering or not?


Also would it make difference that work machine resluts are from SW2014 and home results are from SW2016 (pre-release1) ?
