    OS x 10.12.5 Geekbench 4 scores ~4100 single core and ~8200 multi.
    Win10 Pro (via Bootcamp) Geekbench scores ~2500 single core and ~4000 multi.

    Hardware is 2017 rMB with i7 / 16Gb Ram

    In Windows, I have the "Power Options" set to "High Performance" (and there is actually no score difference between any of the Windows "Power Option" settings).

    Anyone else have Win10 via Bootcamp scores that are comparable to the 4100/8200 OSX scores?

    Everytime I boot into Windows there is a "Restart Required to finish setting up device - Mobile 7th Generation Intel(R) Precessor Family" notification in the Action center. I wonder if that is something to do with it?

    (I don't think it is related, but I also installed Parallels 12 and have it creating a VM from the Bootcamp partition, and those VM'd Geekbench scores are similar to the Bootcamp scores. I wonder if the Parallels VM creation mucked with the Bootcamp installation...)

    Any idears?

    Solved.

    Found a windows "Process" in Task Manager called "Chromium host executable (32 bit)" that was consuming 30% - 50% of CPU resources that auto loaded on start up, came with installing Autodesk Inventor software. It is a known system hog, and simple fix is disabling it from loading on start up.

    Since disabling it, GeekBench 4 is reporting 4375 Single-Core and 7523 Multi-Core Score. Much better. Autodesk Inventor runs just as well if not quicker than late 2013 15" MBP with bootcamp.
