Share some Geekbench scores

edited November 2019 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. :)

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

    @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.

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

    If so, then that's a 30GB SSD that you have.

    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.

    I actually considered Contabo as one of my top choices back then, until I found that there are much better potassium pushers in the forum.
