Are the scores for dual-processor systems for one processor or both?

For example this system ( is running two 8-core xeon processors (8x2 = 16 cores) with a multi-core score of 9714. Is this score for all 16 cores or 8 cores?

    It must be a score for all 16 cores.

    In that case, I hope dual-cpu tests are not factored into the CPU benchmark charts, otherwise the multi-core chart is rendered useless.

    Geekbench runs the multi-threaded workloads on all available cores, so the scores for dual-processor systems are for both processors.

    Scores on the Geekbench CPU charts are for single processor systems unless otherwise indicated (e.g., dual-processor Mac Pros on the Mac Benchmark Chart).
