CrownCloud USA Los Angeles AMD Ryzen 5950X Powered SSD VPS Test and Review

Our technical team recently put the CrownCloud USA Los Angeles VPS, equipped with an AMD Ryzen 5950X processor, through its paces. This server boasts an impressive hardware setup, which includes a 4-core CPU, 4 GB of RAM, 100 GB of SSD storage, fast internet connectivity of 1 Gbps, a 2 TB bandwidth transfer, and both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.

This review covered a range of tests: We started with basic benchmarks – these measure the server’s raw power. We also ran Yabs and Unix Benchmark to check core performance stats. To understand how well the servers are connected globally, we used the Global Node Test to look at network performance and the Global Ping Test to see how quick the response times are.

We also checked whether the server can access media from various regions with the Media Unlock Test. We used tools like PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix for web speed to see how fast web pages load and run.

Conclusion

In our basic performance testing, the server showed strong I/O speeds, peaking at 597 MB/s on the third run with an average of 478 MB/s. Our network tests revealed upload and download speeds approaching the 1 Gbps mark across various US and Asia locations. However, performance understandably varied with distance and regional connectivity, with some areas in China, like Chongqing and Hongkong, showing significantly lower speeds.

The more detailed Yabs performance bench indicated excellent disk read and write operations, showcasing the server’s ability to handle intensive data transactions effectively. Read and write speeds were particularly notable in the larger block tests. The UnixBench scores demonstrated the server’s computational prowess, particularly high index scores when running multiple parallel copies of tests.

We also undertook a variety of service availability checks known collectively as the Media Unlock Test. The server proved optimal for content delivery and streaming services, with successful access to platforms like Dazn, Amazon Prime Video, and YouTube Premium, predominantly in the US region. However, it did not support all services like HotStar, Disney+, and others.

In conclusion, the CrownCloud server demonstrates robust performance across the board – from raw computational abilities to network speed and media accessibility, despite some expected regional variations. The tests confirmed that the server is reliable for those seeking a high-performance VPS with a strong regional presence in North America. This makes it suitable for businesses targeting the American markets, which need a robust online presence with efficient data handling and streaming capabilities.
