Langevin damping coefficient

How strongly does the Langevin damping coefficient influence a molecular
dynamics simulation?

After quickly browsing the literature I see that values between 1/ps and
10/ps are used where most people use 5/ps. How much does for example a
value of 10/ps slow down dynamics versus a value of 5/ps?

Thanks,
