So you are doing all of the partitioning in the main thread, before
starting any other threads?
Have you profiled that?

Have you benchmarked the effect of adjusting that?
If that is sufficiently large, the performance of the threadpool queue
(etc) will not matter as much.
I suggest that you also tweak your benchmarking so that it runs for a
*lot* longer than 30 milliseconds.
