[postgis-users] Why PostGIS ST_Intersection much slower than ArcGIS Intersect ?

It take millisecond to me to when using ST_Intersects on a spatial join.
What take much longer is when using ST_Intersection in the SELECT clause to
effectively clip a layer with the other one
My computer run under Windows 7 64bits with dual core 2.70GHZ and 8 Go RAM.
Is there anything I can do to check if its normal behavior on this platform
or if something may be wrong on my installation?

Must have something to do with windows and or memory ..
I use ST_Intersects daily on a Linux Server (PostGIS 2.0, PG 9.1.6) with a
quad core Xeon and 16gb memory
it takes milliseconds on much larger layers ..

I don't want to denigrate PostGIS in any way and I know that my
comparison may be wrong but I'm trying to understand why a basic
ST_Intersection of two relatively small layers (< 1000 polygons) take about
1m40 sec in PostGIS(2.0 on PG 9.2 on Windows) while applying the ArcGIS
Intersect on same layers and machine take about 2 sec?
I'm aware of some PostgreSQL tuning settings but even applying basic tuning
recommendation for PostGIS I'm facing the same problem...
My two layers also have a spatial index.
Is it normal behavior? Any suggestion for reaching better performance?
Note that I'm also using ST_Intersects on the join to filter only
Thanks a lot
