Which BLAS implementation do you use? One popular implementation,
OpenBLAS, spawns multiple threads to do some operations faster; the
threads can compete against each other for CPU resources if resulting
number of processes * threads per process is more than what CPU can

How many CPU cores does your system have? Does this include SMT (also
known as hyper-threading on Intel processors)? While some problems
benefit from processor pipeline being able to fetch from multiple
threads at the same time, for others it's more of a bottleneck.

It may help to decrease the n.cores parameter.
