locked FT8 deep decode speed on Pi 4B #FT8

I've been trying out WSJT-x with FT8 recently, running the latest full release on a Pi 4B w/4GB memory, 32GB microSD card, and I notice that on a crowded band (e.g. 20m in the afternoon, >35 stations), the final set of deep decodes will roll out as long as five seconds into the next 15s slot.  Is this a typical decode speed for WSJT-x running on a Pi 4B?  .  On my Windows 10 desktop the deep decodes don't spill over more than a second or so.  I'm assuming this just reflects the more limited processing power of the Pi. Not really an issue but I just wanted to confirm my performance is typical.
