Assuming we're talking GPGPU, a good implementation with tuned workgroup size and so on will use most of the GPU and running two instances should give a net loss of performance. IRL you might see a net gain from running two or a few more instances. I think our various pbkdf2-hmac-sha1 kernels are good enough you will see a net loss if you try it.
