Only increasing the cores alone won't help. If the core count is increased too much, it will take significant time to pass messages across the cores. and it may end up taking more time. Also, if the mesh is same then at one point you won't see a huge difference in the time even if you use multiple nodes. Apart from these, there can be another reason too for the slow down.
