CudaEvent Record vs tick counting

Hey Guys,
I want to compare the timespan for executing some algorithms on GPU using CUDA and on CPU.

  1. I took the CudaEvents to measure the time span. -> duration for one slices where about 0.1608µs
  2. I took the same algorithm and have count the number of ticks while executing the algorithm on CUDA using Stopwatch.ElapsedTicks C# property -> with the number of ticks an my CPU frequency i got a duration for one slice about 6.85µs.

Why is there such a hugh different betwenn the timespan of the CudaEvents und the ticks of the CPU?

Thanks for Answers.
