    As others have mentioned, the test is very flawed. More Intel propaganda?

    It just seems like such an obviously bad approach to comparative testing or establishing a baseline. It's embarrassing almost; why release it if you're Intel?

    Geekbench 4.2.2 is from February 2018, ROME came out in August 2019 so the software is already a year and a half out of date, GeekBench 4.3.3 from March 2019 i would assume Geekbench had problems in utilising 128+ threads since it predates such multi threaded processors. It also calls into question with the use of Windows 10 Pro and if they have the patches to utilise the cores the software they are testing is clearly won't utilise a ROME Based processor.

    A google search says the ROME from July this year can get 35k with Windows 10 Pro
    https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/14856570

    Then Linux has 76k with the same processor and 64 cores
    https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/14569217

    So changing from the Windows 10 Pro handicap version to one that can utilise the cores increases performance over 2x.
