Kimsufi 2G CPU Poll

Kimsufi 2G CPU Poll

Just curious as to what kind of CPUs everyone else has been getting. I've gotten four Celerons in a row so far lol!

Anyone get better recently?

    Intel Xeon Dual Hex Core E5-2620 ;)

  • @dominicl: How the hell did you get that? I'm sure Kimsufi 2G gets Atoms or Celerons, not Xeons

    Catalyst Host - Pie Approved!

    /derail.........................................

  • its not derail, its just requesting verification if it was 2G or something else

  • ah :P i don't use ovh/ks lol I was saying I derailed.

    There's like 500 Celeron models, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Celeron_microprocessors which ones did you actually get, because some are like 2-3x better than others. Or do you just get the Celeron 220 @ 1.2 GHz all the time?

    I myself ordered in May 2012, got an Atom N2800, and I'm perfectly happy with it.

    I got an Atom and 3 Pentium D's and 1 P4

  • Pentium D dual core something or other. But it's a couple of years old and so is a C-250G (?) model. 250GB HD instead of the 1TB anyway.

  • lbftlbft Member

    An Atom D425 (single core) and an Atom 330 (dual core).

  • Pentium E2180

  • Gee, where are they getting those, sh shops all around ? M

    Who's General Failure, and why is he reading my drive A: ?

  • @Maounique said: Gee, where are they getting those, sh shops all around?

    Well OVH isn't exactly new so my guess would be that they have a large amount of hardware that has been sitting for some time prior to Kimsurfi usage, but it's also possible they're getting them very cheaply in large lots.

    I have 3 (in the order I got them): Celeron 220 1.2Ghz Atom 230 1.6Ghz Atom N2800 1.86Ghz

    When I first got the little Celeron 220 I was a bit nervous but I have to say that little cpu can go! it is fast and responsive and just keeps on going. nothing mission critical obviously but for what I need it works great.

    Atom 245 single core, with hyper-threading.

    At least it came with a brand new hard drive though...

  • Pentium D :(

    Man, that's better than what I got.

    (And now all you kids out there know why Intel called the Pentium the Pentium, and not the 586!)

  • Cool. Finally got something different today. Intel(R) Atom(TM) CPU N2800 @ 1.86GHz

  • OMG, reading this thread makes me have goosebumps, it is so scary ! Ppl, are you collecting those things ? One every day like at lotto ? M

    Certain people on LET IRC have multiple dedicated servers THAT ARE NOT EVEN KIMSUFI (with the corresponding price difference). And afaik some aren't even running any sort of hosting business, just collecting dedis for fun :D It's the next stage of the addiction, when mere VPSes are no longer enough. :)

    Hey now I do run a business...I just can't stop buying things...

  • Just brought one :( Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 220 @ 1.20GHz

    That's an ok CPU, ranks at 337, about in the middle of the pack: http://www.cpubenchmark.net/low_end_cpus.html

  • BayuBayu Member

    1st get Celeron 1.2GHz 2nd & 3rd get Atom D425, I think much better than Celeron CPU. Hope next time to get Atom N2800 or better.

    Indeed, the performance is much lower compared to the LEB VPS, but I don't have to worry about doing anything that causes excessive disk i/o or cpu overload. :)

    Atom n2800 is a quite good CPU by the way. edit: not to be confused with n280. N280 bad, N2800 good.

    @Bayu as you can see by the link above, Atom D425 is slower than the Celeron 220 (score 314 vs 337). Yes it is not obvious, but this Celeron 1.20 GHz actually beats Atom D425 at 1.8 GHz. There was A LOT of wildly different CPUs called "Atom" and "Celeron" over time, so you really should not just look at the processor name and frequency only. For example would you expect that a Celeron 1.2 GHz has the same benchmark as a Celeron 2.80 GHz? Yep it does, check the results page. Just two different architectures of a "Celeron", also several generations apart, having almost nothing in common.

    I'm sorry I've never measure it with a benchmark software. But I feel if the Atom is better in the use of remote desktop. Run firefox and archive files (using rar) are noticeably faster. Maybe I am wrong, but indeed that's what I feel.

  • I got an Atom n2800, duel core/hyperthreaded :)

    I was quite pleased, very nervous when I signed up in case I got a Celeron

  • Atom N2800.

    Hard drive is pretty decent too for a single SATA drive:

  • @kalam @mvpsSimon mind to share the HDD type on that server?

    maybe use

    hdparm -I /dev/sda | grep Model

    i know OVH have a weird hardware combination on all their servers.

    Yes! I'm with Carstensz Pyramid Server Now stop asking me please :D

  • thanks guys, you've been "very" lucky.. a friend of mine got Hitachi HDD, and the dd test is about a half from your result.

    Yes! I'm with Carstensz Pyramid Server Now stop asking me please :D
  • no worries, haven't yet had a celeron :) now I said that, watch all future ones I get be celerons :p
