Other than the comments already on your post:

"I’m not sure why Syn is performing better with 3 nodes than with 2 (and 
I’ve repeated this test more than once)."

This is the good thing about these kind of benchmarks, they allow you to 
find oddities in the behaviour of your code. So figure this thing out. :-)

I will add the package to the index in a few.
