The swing in ppd is related to the mix of WUs. That's normal. But your increase in ppd came from dropping the cores from 8 to 6 for CPU folding while GPU folding. Basically, running at 8 cores you were starving the GPUs of CPU cycles.

That's why I told you the 99FX was a good platform for GPU folding... you either CPU fold (bigadv on a MP board) or you GPU fold using video cards. Mixing rarely brings better ppd.

you would use cpu locking affinity only if you have trouble finishing the WU. In this day and time is not really used, all cpus are just fine
