Not sure about oclHashcat, but with John the Ripper, GPU formats usually require a much larger number of password candidates to achieve their max. speed. If you have to test several small attacks (word lists / patterns) against a huge number of password hashes, or with john's --single mode, the CPU format may often be the better choice, even if the GPU format reports a much better c/s rate.
