    DigitalOcean has announced a new line of Premium Droplet VPS servers sporting the newer Intel Cascade Lake and AMD EPYC Rome Zen2 based processors and NVMe fast storage https://www.digitalocean.com/blog/premium-droplets-intel-cascade-lake-amd-epyc-rome/ :) Take them for a spin using my referral link if you must :D ;)


    Hopefully, the new VPS servers perform better than the older DigitalOcean VPS servers I tested and compared at DigitalOcean - Linode - Vultr - Benchmarks - Upcloud - 13-Way VPS Server Benchmark Comparison Tests - Upcloud vs DigitalOcean vs Linode vs Vultr vs Hetzner :)
    • Intel Premium Droplets currently run second generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors, which feature what’s commonly referred to as the Cascade Lake architecture. These Intel CPUs operate at a base frequency of 2.50 GHz and max turbo frequency of 3.90 GHz and memory clocked at 2933Mhz with NVMe disks. Right now available in all DigitalOcean datacenter locations.
    • AMD Premium Droplets currently run second generation 2nd Generation AMD EPYC™ processors, based upon the “Zen 2” architecture, which feature what’s commonly referred to as the Rome architecture. These AMD EPYC CPUs operate at a base frequency of 2.0 GHz and a max turbo frequency of 3.35 GHz and memory clocked at 3200Mhz with NVMe disks. Available in only 3 DigitalOcean datacenter locations to start with for NYC3, SFO3 and FRA1.
