Conclusion

In I/O speed tests, results were somewhat inconsistent, clocking in at an average of 164.0 MB/s, landing it in the “poor” category as per industry standards. Network performance showed significant variances depending on location, with impressive speeds in Europe, especially in Amsterdam (3884.60 Mbps upload and 9160.03 Mbps download) and Paris, albeit with poorer performance in Chongqing and Hongkong. The Yabs performance bench highlighted excellent disk speeds, with the mixed read/write tests showing particularly strong numbers, peaking at 12.55 GB/s for 512k block sizes, which is exceptional by any standard.

The Geekbench 6 Benchmark Test provided a single-core score of 766, categorizing it as “poor,” while the multi-core score of 2574 fits into the “good” spectrum. The UnixBench scores bolstered this with a substantial increase in performance when leveraging all 6 CPUs, culminating in a system benchmarks index score of 3332.1, showcasing a robust capacity for multi-threaded tasks.

In conclusion, while the server’s I/O speed and single-core CPU performance may fall short of expectations, its excellent disk speeds, strong multi-core capabilities, and impressive network performance in certain regions make it a strong candidate for tasks requiring high disk throughput and multi-threading efficiency. This nuanced performance profile suggests it’s best suited for specific applications leveraging its strengths, such as web hosting environments optimized for rapidly serving content across Europe.
