That is very hard to answer specifically because different discovery requests take vastly different amount of resources. Plus it is very dependant on your hardware.
Effectively you are making up to 5 times the number of discovery requests so there is basically up to 5 times more bandwidth and discovery resources. The system does not make concurrent requests to the same endpoint so this can increase overall throughput rather than decreasing discovery time for individual endpoints. In fact it may make individual endpoints take longer. Because more things are being processed at the same time the ECA engines are almost certainly going to grow in size. If your are not scanning enough IPs at the same time then there will be no additional work done.
Frequently the biggest bottleneck in the system is writing data to the datastore. This in turn is normally limited by the speed of your I/O.
