Low Crypto scores with 7600k

My geekbench 4 scores are showing odd/low Crypto scores, especially with the multi-core score. Single core is 3,572 for Crypto and Multi is 8,027. Other 7600k machines shows a crypto for multi that is about double -- 14k-16k. I have AES enabled in BIOS. Is there anything else that could be limiting/bringing down the score. I'm baffled.

The single-core AES is at 2.7 GB/s, which is about average for the 7600k, but multi-core is only 6 GB/s, compared to roughly 11 GB/s for other 7600k.

Any advice and tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    I am not sure what would be causing this issue. Could you link your results in the Geekbench Browser so that I could take a closer look?

    Hi Colin -- Thanks for the response -- and a timely one too.

    I just added 16GB of RAM to my machine just this morning, bringing the total to 24GB, and for some reason that fixed my problem.

    Here's the old score: https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/3903673

    And here's the new one this morning: https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/3921610
