CPU Upgrade

I am upgrading to either a dedicated server or VPS with GPU. A Dedicated Server has a better and more efficient use of its resources as there is no level of virtualization like in the case of a VPS.

Volume Profile

I am getting a different Up Volume, Down Volume, and Delta Volume quantity when comparing the NQ 3min standard bars with the NQ 3min Volume Profile bars even though the total volume is the same. So the Delta Volume has almost a 10% difference. Can I adjust this somehow? See attached.
