[gmx-users] different results when using different number cpus

I used Gromacs3.3.1 to do a simulation about two proteins in water(tip3p).
I run two similar simulations, one for 2 cpus, while the other for 16 cpus.
The two simulations have the same .gro, .top, and the same .mdp files. I found
the results were not the same. In the 2 cpus simulation, the two proteins
run closer and closer. But they run apart in the 16 cpus simulation.
Is that normal the different results when using different number cpus? The
size of my simulation box is 9*7*7.
