To get the kind of throughput I use multiple threads / workers. Have you looked at basho_bench, it is a simple, reliable tool to benchmark Riak clusters?

The second does not - it creates the client once, then iterates over it keeping the same client and presumably the same connection as well. That makes a huge difference.
