Here attached is a graph showing the Geekbench 4.2.x for three CPUs, AMD 1950X, AMD 2950X and Intel 9900K and three OSs, Linux, Mac and Windows. All fetched by taking the first four or five pages of results copied into a spreadsheet. This was done two times, first sorted by fastest single core, and then sorted by fastest multi core. In all, some 400-500 observations.

[1950X] Linux wins over Mac and then Windows.
[2950X] Linux wins over Windows (didn't find any Mac).
[9900K] Linux, Mac, Windows largely overlapping.

Singlecore: [1950X] Mac wins over Linux and Windows!
[2950X] Linux and Windows largely overlapping. (didn't find any Mac)
[9900K] Linux, Mac, Windows largely overlapping.

What could be the reason for Mac winning in single-core over Linux?!
