Low OpenCL score and SFFT score of 0 on RX 5700 XT

I have an RX 5700 XT running on a Core i5 CPU and Windows 10 Pro 64-bit.
Running registered version of 5.4.1 of Geekbench my OpenCL score is pitifully low (around 30000 when I would expect around 70-80000). Vulkan score is as I would expect (around 57000).

When running the OpenCL benchmark I receive the error "One or more workloads have failed validation and have been assigned a score of zero".
The SFFT result is 0.

1. Is the SFFT value of 0 the reason my overall OpenCL score is so low?
2. Why is this value consistently 0?

Have installed an older version of Geekbench (4) and am not receiving the error.

    THere's a know issue with Radeon RX 5700 XT cards in that they return lower than expected scores when run with older drivers. If you update your drivers your scores should return to the expected levels.
