iWebFusion United States Intel Core i9-9900K Dedicated Server Test and Review

Today, we’re putting the iWebFusion‘s Los Angeles-based Linux dedicated server to the test. This server boasts an Intel Core i9-9900K CPU that clocks in at 3.60GHz and is matched with 64 GB of RAM. It also has a 1.5 TB SSD for storage, a speedy 10 Gbps internet connection, and an IPv4 address.

As for the nitty-gritty, we’ve run many tests to see how this server holds up. We started with basic benchmarks like Yabs and Unix Benchmark to get a read on its core performance. To check out the network chops, we ran the Global Node Test and zipped some pings across the globe to measure latency.

Our team performed the Media Unlock Test to see how it handles content across different regions. If you’re curious about the connection quality to CloudFlare’s services, we checked that, too. Lastly, for those who are into web performance, we’ve got insights from PageSpeed and GTmetrix to share how quickly this server delivers web pages.

Conclusion

The server came in with an average I/O speed of 429.0 MB/s across three runs. While this isn’t at the top of the charts (which would be 1000 MB/s or higher), it’s well clear of being slow. It’s a respectable result, capable of handling most tasks without sweat.

Regarding upload and download speeds, the server showed its muscles with a download speed reaching 8609.71 Mbps and uploads hitting up to 8674.14 Mbps when connected locally. Performance did vary when connecting across the globe, with the numbers dropping as the distance increased. Still, these are solid results.

In terms of CPU prowess, the Geekbench 6 scores were promising. The server achieved a single-core score of 1914, placing it in the ‘good’ category (just a hop, skip, and a jump from ‘excellent’), while it shone with a multi-core score of 8331, showcasing the true power of the i9 processor.

The more detailed UnixBench gave us genuinely impressive scores. Running one parallel copy of tests, our server scored well above average across the board, promising excellent overall performance. When we ramped up the test to 16 parallel copies, the index score skyrocketed, revealing this server as a multi-tasking monster.

In summary, iWebFusion’s server is a strong contender in dedicated servers. With more satisfactory I/O speeds, fantastic local download and upload speeds (with decent global performance), and top-tier CPU results, this server can tackle demanding tasks and heavy workloads. Whether you’re hosting resource-hungry websites or need robust network capabilities, this server has the horsepower to back you up.
