Cherry Servers Singapore AMD EPYC Dedicated Bare Metal Server Test and Review

We recently tested the Cherry Servers dedicated server in Singapore. It’s got a powerful AMD EPYC 7443P 24-core processor. Here’s a quick rundown of the server specs: a 24-core processor running at 2.85 GHz, 64GB of RAM that ensures reliable performance, dual 250GB SSDs for fast storage, a speedy 3 Gbps internet connection, a generous 20 TB of bandwidth, and a single IPv4 address.

For our review, we ran several tests, including basic benchmarks for overall performance, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark to track key system stats, network tests to gauge the server’s reach globally, ping tests to check how fast it responds, and tests for streaming access in different regions. We also looked at connection quality with CloudFlare tests and used tools like PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix to measure website speed.

Conclusion

In our tests, we first evaluated the server’s input/output performance multiple times, witnessing average speeds of around 241.7 MB/s, which is quite responsive for data-intensive operations. The Yabs benchmark, looking at read and write operations, confirmed the server’s swift handling of data at varied amounts, with speeds peaking at 430.18 MB/s when managing larger chunks of information. This indicates the server has fast and reliable storage performance.

For CPU strength, the Geekbench test gave impressive figures showing this machine has the power to handle demanding tasks, with scores reaching 1431 for single-core and 13032 for multi-core operations. We topped it off with the UnixBench test, which threw a range of tasks at the server, from scripting to file transfers, resulting in an overall score of 1943.4, a testament to the server’s ability to multitask effectively under stress.

In summary, the dedicated server from Cherry Servers in Singapore stands out as a high-performing machine. It can easily tackle heavy workloads with a speedy processor, plenty of memory, and quick storage. Whether for web hosting, data processing, or other demanding tasks, this server has the muscle to perform consistently well.
