Why results are different?

I have Supermicro m/b and e3-1280v6
When I run Geekbench 5 on different platform I get different results. The score difference is more than 10 percent. Why?
Is Win 10 is so unoptimized?

    One of your results is from a VM which makes your whole question kinda vague.

    Then Windows 10 has different power management modes and runs tons of background services which could affect your benchmarks.

    Lastly GB5 Linux version shows slightly better results than its Windows version for some reasons but not 10% faster. Anyways, comparing raw HW results to a VM makes very little sense.

    Hi, thanks for your answer.
    I am using ESXi 6.7 for virtualization, Supermicro X11SSL m.b.
    I have 2 VM and all hardware resources allowed for it. At the test moment runs only 1 WM.
    For Win10 machine disabled and deleted all preinstaled applications and services.
    So, I undersund, the Geekbench chould call low level CPU instructions for testing performance, and there choud'n be macth performance difference between platforms.
    I got 4690 for Ubuntu, and 4173 for Win10. Ubuntu has 12.3% better performance score than windows in this case.
    In bios all nesesary power setting are in auto or on.
    May be I don't understand some detail about cross platform performance testing or some thing else? Or it's just difference because of platform?
