RTT times different between nping and other ping implementations

I've noticed this for the past year or so since NPING was introduced.

First, I may not be reading / interpreting the values for RTT
correctly between the standard Windows ping utility and nping.

Here is a ping to a remote IP over 16 hops.  Ten pings with Windows
PING.EXE to help smooth its "stat," followed immediately with an nping
to the same IP.

Windows ping yields 29 / 33 / 29 ms for min/max/avg, and nping yields
47 / 31 / 34.4.  I'd be wiling to toss the min/max values, but why so
much difference in the mean?

What am I missing here?


ping -n 10 AAA.BBB.CCC.DDD ;
