Performance of the ADX SI-1016-2

Looking at the datasheet I do see some performance values for the ADX 1000 but there is just one set of performance values. Nevertheless I do see two types of the ADX 1000 in the datasheet: one with 2 application processors and 2 with 4 application processors - what is the performance difference?

Re: Performance of the ADX SI-1016-2

The number published are related to the devices with 4 application processors - you do have the following:
