    AX51-NVME vs PX62-NVME

    1) which one is better and why ?

    AX51-NVME
    AMD Ryzen 7 3700X Octa-Core "Matisse" (Zen2)
    64 GB DDR4 ECC RAM
    NVMe 2 x 1 TB

    vs

    PX62-NVME
    Intel® Xeon® E-2176G Hexa-Core
    64 GB DDR4 ECC RAM
    NVMe 2 x 960 GB
    Software-RAID 1 ( SSD datacenter)

    70 euros vs 88 euros but i have seen that in the benchmark the AMD is better

    https://versus.com/en/amd-ryzen-7-3700x-vs-intel-xeon-e-2176g

    2) btw i have seen that ecc is not supported for amd in the same page . Which is the correct ? hetzner or this page ?

      AX-51. Nothing justifies the additional 18 euro. You may even want to take a look at EX52-NVME as it's 5 euro cheaper.

      btw. @Hetzner_OL thank you for providing another solid lineup :)

      If they were at the same price what you would prefer?

      I'd choose AX51-NVME because it's passmark is way higher (AMD vs Intel). However if uptime is critical for your usage you may be better with Intel based server as it's hardware is more server-oriented, meanwhile Ryzen servers are pure customer hardware.

      If HD performance is important, PX62-NVME has enterprise NVMEs and the AX has consumer NVMEs.

      It is important but the AMD seems To have a better performance so i cannot take a decisión between both

      Are You write a lot of data? The consumer NVME has really low write endurance, i wrote 3TB and have already used 1%. Enterprise NVME in the PX62, 30TB 1%

    • AMD Ryzen can support ECC if motherboard supports it AFAIK. I read AMD left ECC validation up to motherboard vendors.

      AMD Ryzen performance can be excellent with the right server/OS optimisations and newer Linux Kernels but still depends on what type of work loads you are intending to use. Best way to find out which is better, is to test both and pick the one that is right for you :)

      I am currently doing extensive Centmin Mod/CentOS 7 benchmark comparison testing for the following servers paired with 1.2TB NVMe with both stock 3.10 and 5.3+ Linux Kernels.

      • AMD Ryzen 3600 - completed
      • AMD Ryzen 3800X - completed
      • AMD Ryzen 3900X - soon
      • AMD Ryzen 3950X - maybe
      • Intel Xeon E-2276G - completed
      • Intel Xeon E-2288G - soon
      • Intel Core i9 9900KS - soon

      Will have alot of benchmark/real world testing result data for alot of reviews I'll be writing :)

      Thanks Eva ! Grr i could not see neither my AMD neither Intel of hetzner :( bad luck

      Anyway i am using tour centminmod 22 for a huge WordPress/ woocommerce with lot of images . which would you prefer. You have lot of servers And you are the father of centminmod so .....

      Do you see much difference in kernel 3 and 5? Perhaps you can also test with Centos8/ stock kernel 4.x....

    • JordJord Moderator, Provider

      I use AMD at home, but I would like to give it a try on a server level. I've been using Intel and currently colo Intel. As soon as I can pick up some AMD Ryzen servers I will. But for now, for me, Intel is working just fine.

      I haven't tested your specific cpus you mentioned in above post so can't say 100% but either would do well with Centmin Mod's wordpress auto installer routine which should be able to handle alot on either of your listed servers. Pair it up with Cloudflare properly configured, and you can handle quite alot of traffic.

      AMD Ryzen/EPYC Rome need at least 5.2+ Linux Kernel to shine. 3.10 and even 4.18 Kernels too old for them. Also need to double check that Turbo boost frequencies are working at rated specs for your setups under load too. Don't assume they're boosting to rated specs. I wrote a script to log and chart each processors' cpu core's individual cpu frequencies throughout the benchmark testing to verify they're Turbo boosting as they're intended to.

      Centmin Mod isn't compatible with CentOS 8 yet - still working through the compatibility list detailed at https://community.centminmod.com/threads/centmin-mod-centos-8-compatibility-worklog.18372/

      Aha, this is the real difference between the servers. I bet the PX ssd's are faster too, besides being more durable. AMD consumer cpus do support ECC though not all motherboards implement it. I guess it's not possible to get credit for swapping out the consumer NVMe's and putting in enterprise ones, but if you can use the HDD storage, you might get the HDD model of the AX server, and add-on enterprise NVMe ssds.

      Meanwhile AMD announced the 3950x and 24 and 32 core 3rd gen threadrippers today! See anandtech.com and similar places for info. Maybe we will see some new AX servers soon ;).

      Why do I feel like host101 is on its way with the op?

      It is not the case. I am not interested in the hosting business.only for personal use

      If this is true, then the collapsible description of the nvme ssd on the AX series is inaccurate.

      I assume the AX42-nvme has the same drives as the EX42-nvme. I have EX42-nvme and px62-nvme servers with hetzner.

      If i look in their wiki, they dont have 512GB enterprise NVMEs. Enterprise disks starts with 960GB (https://wiki.hetzner.de/index.php/Root_Server_Hardware/en).
