What are the physical processors ? (Is it an numa architecture ? if yes, could be a memory bandwith problem)
Do you have tried to launch unixbench on the host to compare ?
Maybe can you try to add +x2apic cpu flag ? It should reduce interrupts. (It's already in current qemu-server git)

Objet: [pve-devel] KVM with same cores as host is as slow as one core
while benchmarking my kvm machines using unixbench i see the following
Host has 24 cores.
KVM Machine set to 2 cores: Unixbench Value 2514
KVM Machine set to 16 cores: Unixbench Value 6714
KVM Machine set to 24 cores: Unixbench Value 1742
Also i see a max of 105% CPU Usage of the KVM process when setting the
cores to 24.
While i'm seeing more than 1000% setting it to 16 cores.
