How does tile size affect Cycles render performances in Blender 3D?

While working on my pseudo-minion WIP model, about one month ago, I decided to test how tile size settings affect Cycles render performances in Blender 3D.

I launched five render tests using square tiles of 16, 32, 64, 128 and 256 pixel. The results are summarized in this table.

Tile Size Render Time
16 px 00:10.59
32 px 00:10.37
64 px 00:10.52
128 px 00:10.68
256 px 00:11.74
