Seems like these guys aren't sleeping either :)

    Not bad, to say the least. I haven't touched netcup in a while anyway.

    Yeah I meant netcup. Saw some of their older rootserver benches it seems not at 100% thread anyways

    Just 2GHz base clock?
    They're taking every chance to change to the worse, yet.

    64 cores up to 2.6GHz base. (And faster when lower core count) Wtf are you rambling on about?

    The new root servers use the Epyc 7702: https://www.netcup.de/vserver/

    The 7702 and 7702P have 2.00 ghz base clock: https://www.amd.com/en/products/cpu/amd-epyc-7702

  • Ah yeah my bad, my phone somehow showed 7702 to be series not a specific CPU.

    There is also the vcore vs pcore thing, plus the unpleasantness of non-EU users getting charged EU sales tax (unless there is a way out of that now). But 2TB of SSD is a lot, so the top model at 45€ is still fairly attractive for some use cases.

  • They look pretty attractive to me!

  • waits on benchmark

  • I bit the bullet and ordered one, apparently my order requires manual verification. Is this standard practice?

    Yes. Maybe this will help you to get an idea what you need to know when ordering from Netcup/Hetzner/Contabo..: https://talk.lowendspirit.com/discussion/1124/a-headsup-about-german-provider-policies/p1?new=1

    That is impressive geekbench for such a low priced server. Close to 3x my Hetzner 3rd gen i7, I think. I hope it holds up as the nodes get full. Now they just need some cheap storage to go with it. Hourly billing would also be great.

  • I will say that the nested virt cost is pretty crazy, 2 EUR per core per month. Meaning 24 EUR per month for the highest VM, nearly double the cost of the server.
