Main memory bus or cache contention? Integer execution ports full? Throttling? VTune is useful to find out where the bottleneck is, things like that tend to happen when you start loading every logical core.

I'm seeing a drop in performance of both multiprocess and subinterpreter

despite having enough logical CPUs, while the other cases scale quite
well. Is there some issue with python multiprocessing/subinterpreters on
the same logical core?
