After much testing and research into optimal server configurations, we’re proud to announce that we now offer High Performance VPS services using the latest-gen AMD Ryzen 7000 processors!
Utilizing the AMD Ryzen 7000 Processors with server-grade hardware and super-fast NVMe storage allows us to offer High Performance VPS services with over 300% faster CPU performance than what is typically found from traditional VPS hosting services.
We took the time to benchmark the AMD Ryzen 7900 against other CPUs typically found in traditional VPS hosting. For single-threaded applications, high-frequency CPUs are certainly the way to go!
Our test results.
We also utilize the Xeon E-2388G for our services, which achieves a GeekBench 6 single-core benchmark score around 2300 with turbo. However, the E-2388G has a relatively low 8 cores and 16 threads and is much more expensive than the Ryzen counterparts. Low core count servers are not suitable for general VPS hosting and therefore excluded from the benchmark comparison above.
We tested various cooling configurations to ensure we can keep CPU temperatures low whilst also avoiding water-cooling. In turn reducing the power consumption of the server as well as our carbon footprint by as much as 56w/hour!
Many other hosting providers offering Ryzen solutions opt to use water-cooling solutions, commonly the Dynatron L3. However, in the interest of reliability and efficient energy usage, we’ve opted to use standard server heatsinks. This performs almost identically to the Dynatron L3 water-cooling under various operating conditions on the Ryzen 7900 in particular. This gives us less points of failure typically found in water-cooling setups, i.e. pump and tubing connections. Meaning we’ll never have to take our servers offline to fix a leak or replace a cooler!
