Looking at this -- https://opendata.blender.org/query/fastest-cpu
The AMD Epyc 7551 32 core score... is actually a dual socket score -- https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/970fqu/i_submitted_an_epyc_result_to_the_blender/
"Complete run took 15:26.06. Dual Epyc 7551 with 2x32 cores on a Supermicro board with 256 GB DDR4-2667 in 8 slots (only quad-channel per-CPU)."
This is misrepresented in the results, making the results look like a single CPU is that powerful instead of a dual socket configuration being that powerful.
