    Phoronix: Intel Xeon Silver 4108 + Tyan Tempest HX S7100

    One of the latest server platforms under our bombardment of Linux benchmarks recently has been the Tyan Tempest HX S7100 (S7100AG2NR) motherboard which at the moment is paired with an Intel Xeon Silver 4108 processor. This ~$430 Xeon Scalable processor has eight cores plus Hyper Threading to yield 16 threads, a low 1.8GHz base frequency but with 3.0GHz turbo, 11MB L3 cache, six-channel memory support, AVX-512 capabilities, and has a 85 Watt TDP.

    Price seems decent, for an Intel server CPU.

    I'm curious what this CPU would look like de-lidded; that IHS has a pretty weird shape to it, and, the top part of it doesn't seem to be perfectly flat. For socket 2066, Intel seems to have glued on the board of a smaller socket beneath the IHS, so this gets me to wonder if they did the same for socket 3647 (that sure is going to be a hard number to remember).

    And no, I'm not expecting Michael to de-lid this. That's not the kind of thing he should be testing for; that's a job best left for a different reviewer who would do one session of tests with the CPU and never touch it again.

          85W TDP, yeah right..., at base frequency perhaps in idle.

            There are power results at end of this article...

              I know, I wonder how Intel is not being sued for false advertisement of a product. TDP should be max power draw under load, no overclocking. Refusal to publish clock speed ratio tables for Coffee Lake and onwards is another anti-consumer move. I think my Sandy Bridge is going to be my last Intel processor.

                Are the two m.2 drives able to be put in RAID?

                  What do you mean by this? Test results show that the entire system peaked at 96W, take away power used my the motherboard and other components and this seems spot on.

                    There is not hardware RAID support across the two M.2 slots but you could use Btrfs RAID / mdadm should work.
