This paper presents the benchmark evaluation of the new ENDF/B-VIII.0 nuclear library for the OECD/NEA Medium 1000 MWth Sodium-cooled Fast Reactor (SFR). There are 2 SFR cores: metallic fueled (MET-1000) and oxide fueled (MOX-1000). The continuous-energy Monte Carlo Serpent2 code was used as the calculation tool. Various nuclear libraries such as ENDF/B-VII.1 and JENDL-4.0 were included to be compared with the newest ENDF/B-VIII.0. The evaluated parameters are k,βeff, sodium void reactivity (∆ρNa), Doppler constant (∆ρDoppler), and control rod worth (∆ρCR).
