Hi there!

I'm just questioning why my CPU had such a low score on Geekbench 4. I think it had a 2k+ Single core and a 4800 multi core score.
Here are my specs:

AMD Athlon x4 880k
GeForce GTX 1060
8GB Ram
Hitachi 1TB HDD
450W Power Supply (Weird Brand)
ASRock fm2a88m pro3+
XION Gaming Series 310 PC case

    Hey there.

    I'm pretty sure you should be getting a better score.
    I got 6k+ on my Athlon 860K Stock.

    Let me know if you get a better result next time you test,

    Thanks for your message! There are many different factors that can affect Geekbench score results, which makes it impossible for us to figure out why your machine may be returning a lower than expected score! Please make sure that you're running Geekbench while connected to power and that all other apps are closed!

    If you notice that your machine isn't up to it's usual performance standard, I would recommend taking it into a service centre as these low scores are most likely some sort of hardware or software issue. If you'd like to read more in depth information about how your CPU scores are calculated, please check out our CPU Workloads PDF!
