For the tests favoring more cores over higher operating frequencies, the Xeon Silver 4108 is positioned as expected ahead of the Xeon E3 v5 Skylake CPUs but behind the older Haswell E5 v3 CPUs due to their higher operating frequencies.

Or in the case of John The Ripper is running with the E3 v5 hardware. For reference, the Xeon E3 1280 v5 CPU originally retailed for around $600 USD while the Xeon Silver 6138 premiered just above the $400 price point.

While x264 is multi-threaded it favors the higher operating frequencies of the other CPUs.
