Hardware VS Software

I am doing some performance analysis for hardware and software. The program will generate a set of random 32 bits number. these numbers will be send to a user peripheral (hardware) for addition. then, these numbers will be used again for addition using ordinary C code (software). this is the result: --Performance Counter Report-- Total Time: 0.0771603 seconds (3858017 clock-cycles) +---------------+-----+-----------+---------------+-----------+ | Section | % | Time (sec)| Time (clocks)|Occurrences| +---------------+-----+-----------+---------------+-----------+ |Hardware | 50.7| 0.03911| 1955390| 1| +---------------+-----+-----------+---------------+-----------+ |Software | 49.3| 0.03805| 1902555| 1| +---------------+-----+-----------+---------------+-----------+ suppose that I guess hardware should be faster but it turned out that software to be faster. may i know why?

Here is a scanned zip that you should be able to open with Paint. It is a .tif file so I hope no problem
