Geekbench 5 result showing half of average results for multithreading AMD threadripper 3970x

Originally started benchmarking with Windows version of latest Geekbench 5. Single thread results are fine but multithread results only showed between 11,000-12,000 when they should be between 22-26000. What's weird is when I run CPU-Z, Passmark, and Cinebench R23 the results for multithreading are fine. I switched to ubuntu and I'm having the exact same problem. Any suggestions as to why Geekbench results show dramatic less performance than they should when other benchmarks seem fine?
