It may be difficult to utilize a CPU with 0 logical cores.

Makes sense. Can you add an * to it in the article, and clarify this to deal with further confusion?

Although there is some element of truth regarding the lower clocked cores, as there is more overhead associated with actually executing each thread, that can be said of R11 too. The difference is really due to the 16 thread limit present in Cinebench R10.
