SVT-AV1 that was started by Intel as a high performance AV1 encoder performs great with Ice Lake as well where thanks to the very tuned software is able to let the Xeon Platinum 8380 perform with the best AMD Zen 3 results/

The Xeon Platinum 8380 server also delivered the best x265 4K video encode performance.

Ice Lake Xeons perform well with PostgreSQL, to little surprise considering PostgreSQL and many other database servers have tended to long perform very well on Intel platforms.

OpenVKL and Open Image Denoise that are part of Intel's oneAPI do perform extremely well with Ice Lake, as would be expected given Intel's own software optimizations.

With the NWChem computational chemistry package the Xeon Platinum 8380 performance was similar to that of the EPYC 7763.
