AVX2 doesn't scale

I am writing a program that uses AVX2.  I wrote the code and am now testing throughput.  With a single thread I get about 7 Mbps of processing.  As I add more threads, the throughput gets up to about 14 Mbps if I use 12 cores:

 

I am curious if anyone knows how to make AVX2 scale well when multi-threading.   I assume that each core has its own AVX2 silicon dedicated to it, is this correct?

 

Thanks,

K-

I am a developer.

Yes I am working on a project.

We are doing an error correction algorithm using AVX2.
