Share some Geekbench scores

edited November 11 in General

Hi Everyone,

As my first post here, I thought that I would create a thread for Geekbench scores. :)

If possible, please try to give some information about the VPS or physical server in question, which makes it easier to see more quickly what the Geekbench benchmark was run on.

I have two fresh Geekbench scores of a popular VPS from UltraVPS.eu from last BF: 4GB RAM, 2 vCores, 10GB + 100GB HDD, Intel Xeon E5-2690 v2 (SAS-Special-1, €40/year; see https://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/153728/ultravps-eu-black-friday-deals-2018 ). The scores are good for a general-purpose VPS of this kind and especially for the price:

v4: https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/14916568
v5: https://browser.geekbench.com/v5/cpu/574173

I renewed this VPS for another year a couple of weeks ago. :)

    Currently the favourite amongst all the boxes I've owned courtesy of Nexus Bytes @seriesn (https://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/161100/nexusbytes-megadealthursday-nvme-kvm-starts-3-25-mo-5gbram-70gbnvme-space-1-windows-server-license/):

    Specs as follows:

    Ryzen 7 3700X
    2 vCPU @ 3.5Ghz (fair share) 
    2GB RAM
    30GB Nvme storage 
    $39 USD annually
    

    v4: https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/14896433
    v5: https://browser.geekbench.com/v5/cpu/562061

    This VM outperforms my daily driver laptop and can even rival my machine learning setup. More than enough power for my hosting needs for the years to come.

    Wow, really impressive. I suspect a fresh machine, so I wonder whether those scores will persist, but perhaps Ryzen really is that impressive.

    BF/CM - Buyer Beware. Conduct your own due diligence on the sustainability of the deals presented here as well as the provider's track record.

    @seriesn seems to keep a good eye on the node. I intend to take longitudinal data points to see if the performance keeps up. Maybe he can answer how fresh it is.

    I was using the @seriesn Ryzen when pissin' about with LowEndInfo.com
    Easily the fastest at installation/updates of all my VPS/servers and possibly my i5 laptop.

    Here is a humble €6 per quarter InceptionHosting 2018 Black Friday special "UK-SSD-KVM-1024" deal from December 2018 ... 1 gb ram kvm, 10 gb nvme, 2 vcores. Good single core performance (E3-1270 v6 @ 3.80GHz) though not much more from the second core (steal time occasionally bumped up to about 50% when running the multicore Geekbench - more typically around 1% when idling). I'm okay with it - bottom line for me is a reliable system on a good network. Also might note cpu passthrough includes the vmx flag.

  • I have a second favourite, a dedicated server from Kimsufi (https://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/155915/kimsufi-flash-sale-ks-7-ca-ks-3-fr/p1). Specs as follows:

    Intel Atom N2800 @ 1.86Ghz
    2 cores / 4 threads
    4GB RAM
    2TB HGST Deskstar
    €5.99 per month
    

    I only have a Geekbench v4 score: https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/14880005

    Please give thanks if you like its superb performance.

    Black Magic!

    Nah, I currently have 2 NVME node and both of them are full. The key is to not over-provision and sell 20 VM per core :P. I keep a healthy CPU to VM ratio and I don't sleep :). Plus I am lucky to have users who understands what shared CPU core is and don't hog them like a leprechaun holding on to his last gold coin.

    Hmm, interesting, I also have that VPS from IH -- I got mine on last Cyber Monday ( https://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/153921/inception-hosting-daily-deals-storage-kvm-vz-nvme-shared-part-2-updated ; it's the one for €17.50/y). But my Geekbench scores are much better than yours:

    v4: https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/14825341 (from October)

    My single-core score (3919) is very close to your multi-core score (3997), and my multi-core score is 5396. A crazy difference. I've been very pleased with the performance of my VPS.

    I wonder: perhaps you're on a busy node, or perhaps it's due to LUKS? ;)

    This one for the PHP Friends schnupperspecial VPS. Which is a good VPS for playing around, testing a bit, a bit of devving. So, overall, am happy with it. Network is also fast my man.

    I do, however, have the idea that the multicore performance could have been a bit better. Get quite some stealtime now and then aswell. So some noisy neighbour might be hammering the cpu.

    I'm guessing it's a busy node. Might take another look to confirm sometime but I'd be surprised if LUKS is loading the cpu very much, given that the aes flag is enabled. Anyway, not a problem for my current use (ahem ... was mostly idling, is now redirecting https://lexit.party).

    (I was hammering the CPU a good part of the day on Saturday, but your scores are from today. :) )

    I would say that that is still a good deal three years later.

    I wonder whether what you have corresponds to the following offer:

    Hm, title on invoice and in control panel is SSD-Special-1. It also says I have 40 GB HDD. It's split in a 10 GB /dev/vda and a 30 GB /dev/vdb1. It also feels kinda sluggish for I/O ... I thought it was 10 GB SSD + 30 HDD, but I might be wrong. It's not the quickest SSD, anyways.

    This is not a current deal/VPS for sale, but it feels way quicker than my old UltraVPS node. It's on an un(der) utilized dedi, though. :smiley:

    Yeah, it's probably not the offer that I linked to, which was called Cloud-BF. And, indeed, it wouldn't be a quick SSD if it were an SSD. Who knows ...

    Which is probably true. When my VPS got provisioned the scores were a bit higher as well.
