Putting my computer to work

So I recently discovered I could make a few extra bucks by setting my computer to mine cryptocurrencies. I'm part of a mining pool and while my pretty decent computer runs at a rate of about 20 H/s, the top miners perform at a rate of 25,000-70,000 H/s. What would explain the difference in rates? Are they using supercomputers? Do they control botnets to mine the cryptocurrentcy? Have they set up multiple instances in a service like Amazon virtual machines? Something else maybe? Thanks in advance for the insights.
