Maybe somewhere out there there's actually a comparison that's clock for clock, thread for thread, lol.
So what if it's the same number of threads? You can't compare HT logical cores to real cores in terms of how much can be done with each thread. They're still running on half as many cores as the AMD system.

Keep in mind that the AMD system was running quad-channel RAM and the Intel system was running triple-channel. As for the Beckton with its quad-channel memory controller, as stated in the review it looks like there were some issues with the testing methods, because the results just don't make sense.

Applications with near perfect scaling should theoretically perform much better on the Magny-Cours system because it has more real cores.
