Xeon Silver 4208


Performance
311.6k points

Description
We need your help: we don't have results in all modes. If you have a Silver 4208 and want to help us to complete the stats, you just have to run the benchmark at stock frequency (no oc) in modes SSE, AVX, and validate the results. You don't have to register and the whole process will take less than 3 minutes per mode.

The Xeon Silver 4208 is a cpu manufactured by Intel that was released on April 2019. This model has 8 Cascade Lake-SP cores with HyperThreading, runs at 2100 MHz as base frequency and has a a thermal design power of 85 W.

Cascade Lake is a architecture focused on high-end CPUs that uses the 14nm process. There are i9 and Xeon models using 4 different cores: Cascade Lake-SP and Cascade Lake-AP for servers, Cascade Lake-W for workstations and Cascade Lake-X for home high-end Pcs.

Non-optimized benchmark
The benchmark in Mode 0 (FPU) measures cpu performance with non-optimized software. It uses the basic µinstructions from the i386 architecture with the i387 floating point unit. This mode is compatible with all CPUs so it's practical to compare very different CPUs

AVX2 optimized benchmark
The benchmark in mode III (AVX2), like AVX1, is optimized to used 256 bits registers beside the second version of the Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX). The first AVX2 compatible CPU was released in 2013.

Monothread performance graph
Monothread performance graphics gives the performance vs time. They are useful to measure the time it takes to the CPU to reach the maximum performance.

Usually, CPU's performance will be steady during these tests but if it has a slow frequency strategy, the first samples will show a lower score.

Multithread performance graph
Multithread graphs measure the performance against a heavy load during certain time.

If CPU's TDP doesn't limit the frequency and the machine is properly cooled, performance should remain steady vs time. Otherwise, the performance score will oscillate or decrease over time.
