Dual CPU, only 1 Recognized - Same Score for 1 and 2 CPU

I have a Hackintosh with dual X5-2683v4. XCPM and LPC are properly configured. Turbo and speedstep is verified working.

But I get the same speed report (or even lower) with 2 CPUs installed as when I only had 1 CPU installed (approximately 25k - 27k, with 1 CPU was getting 25k - 30k).

Additionally, the program does not report any indication that it sees the second CPU (it only says Intel Xeon E5-2683 v4 @ 2.10 GHz).

Does this indicator something is wrong with my setup? Or is it possibly a bug in Geekbench? Or something else entirely?

Appreciate any insight.

    Thanks for reaching out to us about this. Could you link me to one or both of your results in the Geekbench Browser so that I can take a closer look?

    All the best,

    I don't have the results from 1 CPU, but here is with 2. With 1 I was seeing as high as 4500-5000 on 1 CPU and 29-30k multiple.
