Best base refining percentage

So i am pretty sure this question has been asked too many times to count. but i need some help. i was searching and searching for this answer, and looking for it to be clear cut, too many outdated posts or conflicting arguments. So for the most part i found that most sites and whatnot are saying the Minmtarr Outpost have the highest base yield. Now i saw that a POS citadel Null/WH can give a 60% base just as well as the fully upgraded outpost can. so can someone tell me, what station type will give me the best possible base rate. i found these three sources, and they may be a bit outdated. The first one talks about the POS getting an almost equivalent base rate as the OP, the second one, someone broke down a bunch of info, and the third one also break some info down. can someone simplify it for me. Where is the best base rate, POS Citadel with T2 upgrades in null/WH or Minmatarr OP, fully upgraded?

Thanks in advance.

A Citadel with T2 rig has a 54% base refine in highsec, 1.06 multiplier gives 57.24% in lowsec and 1.12 multiplier gives 60,48% in nullsec/wormhole. I believe Minmater outpost with monument upgrade is 60%.

Drilling platforms are expected to have a bonus for reprocessing. I expect CCP will discuss these at Fanfest and we may even get a devblog before then.

The max refine you can (ATM) get is 87.5242368% with a citadel fitting t2 rigs and implant
