Hetzner Germany Falkenstein AMD EPYC CPU Dedicated Server Test and Review

In this round of evaluation, we will rigorously scrutinize the performance of Hetzner‘s Dedicated CPU VPS Server located in Falkenstein, Germany. Empowered by the AMD EPYC Processor, this server boasts 4 CPU cores, 16 GB of RAM, 160 GB of SSD storage, and 20 TB of outgoing traffic capacity. It comes with 1x IPv4 and 1x IPv6.

Our deep-dive analysis includes several comprehensive testing methodologies, such as the Basic Benchmark, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark, which provide critical essential metrics. To examine network performance, we conduct the Global Node Test, which offers extensive network analysis, along with the Global Ping Test to evaluate latency times.

We will also run the Media Unlock Test to check regional content accessibility and the CloudFlare Internet Test to assess the internet connection quality. Website performance evaluation will be done using PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix Performance. These meticulously thorough evaluations will give you an in-depth understanding of the server’s overall performance.

Conclusion

Our test results offer some cool insights into the server’s speed and power. We first checked out its I/O speed and network delay, finding an amazing average I/O speed of 1126.4 MB/s.

The server also showed great network speeds with Speedtest.net showing upload speeds of 926.59 Mbps and download speeds of 908.33 Mbps, alongside very low delay times everywhere we checked. This means the server connects super fast around the world.

Next, we ran some Fio Disk Speed Tests, and the server did better than we hoped. These tests looked at how fast the server can read and write data with different sizes of data blocks. A standout moment was when it hit read and write speeds of 2.34 GB/s and 2.49 GB/s for big, 1m-sized blocks. Also, the Geekbench 6 tests gave us a high single-core score of 1395 and a multi-core score of 3272, showing the server can handle many tasks simultaneously without breaking a sweat.

We also did a UnixBench test focusing on the server’s CPU strength and got impressive numbers. These scores, especially a System Benchmarks Index Score of 2029.1 for one test and an even higher 4754.1 for four tests running simultaneously, prove it’s good at handling multiple tasks.

After thoroughly checking out Hetzner’s Falkenstein Dedicated CPU VPS Server, we can confidently say it’s a top-notch choice. This server stands out in every category, from its I/O speeds and network reliability to its CPU performance. Hetzner’s Dedicated CPU VPS Server is a great pick for a fast, reliable, and powerful server solution.
