Geekbench 5.4 aarch64 crashes on Raspberry Pi 3B

Recently I installed the 64 bit version of Raspberry Pi OS, and when trying to run GB5 the benchmark crashes when it gets to "PDF Rendering" in multi core, this didn't seem to happen with the 32 bit os.
Another thing I found (but on 32 bit raspbian) was that the multi core workloads only used 2 out of 4 cores, this might be an issue with my previous installation though as it didn't seem to happen on the Raspberry Pi 4; here's the submission, just in case

Since the GB5 for arm Linux is still in beta I thought some feedback might be helpful!

    What Raspberry Pi 4 were you using when running Geekbench in 64-bit mode?

    For Geekbench in 32-bit mode, Geekbench 5 only uses two threads on systems with limited memory (currently 1GB of RAM or less).

    Sorry for not explaining myself very clearly, Geekbench crashes on the raspberry pi 3b running 64 bit raspbian, not the 4b (on which I haven't installed the 64bit OS yet, I might try later today).
    On 32 bit raspbian Geekbench runs well, but on the 64 bit edition (with Linux 5.10.25) both versions of the benchmark crash at "PDF Rendering" multi core

    I am seeing a similar problem. I am running Geekbench5 on a Raspberry Pi 4b with 4 GB of RAM running the 64-bit RaspberryPI OS and it is crashing consistently on the multicore HDR test. No log file is produced that I can see, but the Pi reboots.
