The version is Postgres 9.0
Yes, I setup the postgres.conf according to instructions in the
Cool, I will check this
Looks like great starting point to find bottleneck
But so, Is possible in excellent conditions that two connections duplicate the quantity of transactions per second?

There's always a bottleneck - otherwise the system might run faster (and hit another bottleneck eventually). It might be CPU, I/O, memory, locking and maybe some less frequent things.

Might be, but we need more details about how the system works. On Linux I'd ask for output from 'iostat -x 1' and 'vmstat 1' but you're on Windows so there are probably other tools.
What version of PostgreSQL is this? What are the basic config values (shared_buffers, work_mem, effective_cache_size, ...)? Have you done some tuning? There's a wiki page about this:
Have you tried to log slow queries? Maybe there's one query that makes the whole workload slow? See this:
