Intel Xeon Platinum 8380 P-State CPU Frequency Scaling Comparison

For very long-running workloads like OpenFOAM, the governor doesn't make much of a difference give

For simpler workloads like DAPHNE and TensorFlow Lite, there were more measurable differences in performance.

At the extreme, Intel's SVT video encoder workloads really performed the best with the performance governor and running this high-end Xeon Scalable Ice Lake server with the default powersave governor led to much lower performance.

The power efficiency was close with SVT-AV1 encoding across the tested configurations as the CPU package power consumption did really ramp up with the performance governor.
