Default HISAT Discordant Alignment Rate of RNAseq data was so high

To run fast and test the result, I splited one paired-end RNAseq fastq to eight pairs, then I aligned the data to unmasked genome reference using HISAT and Tophat2 respectively. It was so strange that the HISAT results of high RNA sequencing amount and low one were so different.
####### Below are the HISAT results for one splited paired end fastq: (The other seven results were as similar as below.)

###############
The HISAT of splited paired end fastq seemed not bad. But I was shocked when I saw the HISAT results of raw paired end fastqs. Why was the discordant alignment rate so high? The input data were same, and the difference was just that the former was raw fastq and the the latter were the splited fastq.

PS:
########## The Tophat2 result for one of splited paired end fastqs

I assume you just gave the original fastq files in the wrong order to HISAT, since otherwise the subset datasets would have had similar metrics.

Yes, I checked the input files and found that I had a mistake~
Thank U, dpryan.
