Bigger WUs take more power to process, so the CPU can do less PPD with a bigger WU. Usually the extra time is made up for the fact that you get more points for a large WU.
My laptop just finished folding a 401 WU! Avareged 55 PPD, running at night. Somehow peaked at 346 PPD for an hour or so, don't know wtf happened there...
