Very high "runtime" value with -w 4

Hi,

I'm currently running hashcat 3.40 on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS with a single GTX 1080.
My hash file is about 20M SHA1 hashes, and I'm using mask mode:

I'm using this hardware for several weeks now, and I can't recall reading such a high value of "runtime" : about 2 seconds.

Yesterday, I've ugraded the whole system, Nvidia's driver included (yielding to a +20% perf gain on SSHA-1 bench for example). I've also installed Ubuntu-desktop.
I wonder if that very huge 2 sec. runtime value is due to one of these software changes.
And by the way, despite the -w 4 option, the desktop looks responsive.

here is the nvidia-smi reading:

Is the runtime value correlating with some kind of other performance problem?

Also, any reason why you're not using a newer version of hashcat?

My post is pretty old, I've upgraded HC since.
And no, the ~2sec runtime value does not correlate with perf problems, but using -w 4 is supposed to yield to an almost unresponsive GUI (for example). I'm not seeing any performance drop on this area, and that whats bugged me :)

No big deal anyway, everything looks ok.
