Expected haproxy performance inside a VMWare instance

I Just wanted to check that my test results make sense.

When I run haproxy in cookie insert mode on dual core celeron hardware and do an apache bench I get
about 10-15% CPU load for 100,000 trans in 80 seconds.

But on a VMware instance (similar CPU) I get 90% CPU load for 100,000 trans in 90 seconds.
If I lower the concurrency from 5 to 1 I get 35% CPU

Is this an expected result? same test results on 64bit and 32bit VMs/hardware
Any performance advise on VM platform?
