I7 5820k low Geekbench 5 scores.

My Geekbench 5 scores are oddly low compared to other scores with the same CPU and OS version, around 500-700 for single core, and never above 4000 for multi, whereas similar systems are hitting 6000 for multi.

Intel Power Gadget confirms the CPU is hitting its boost clock of 3.6Ghz, whereas iStat Menus does report hitting 3Ghz at all.

I’ve compiled a manual SSDT-PMC.aml, I’ve used CPUFriendFriend, and ensured the KEXTs are running - no difference.

And I’ve checked IORegistryExplorer that power management is running, it confirms plugin-type as 0x1.
