    I don't know how I got a high performance droplet from digitalocean for a regular price. For more details, I got the intel platinum @ 2.70 ghz since the regular only the intel gold @ 2.30ghz. I did install centminmod on that droplet and it's quite faster than the regular droplet. Sadly, 2gb of ram force me to upgrade the droplet, After the upgrade, it's back to the regular gold cpu :));) (Location: Singapore)

    Yeah, 15$ a month 2 vCPU Platinum @2.7 ghz. I should pay 20$ at the begin then I will have 4Gb or RAM instead of 2GB :(( So i don't have to upgrade.

    nice it's been a while since I played with new DO droplets so might go hunting for some Xeon Gold/Platinum cpu ones too just to see if they exist on regular priced DO droplets instead of guaranteed on DO Optimised CPU droplets.

    @eva2000 Just lucky :(( Nah, DO regular droplet CPU is slower than Linode (Both Intel Gold) And I have checked other locations beside Singapore. I only got the E5v4 @1.80ghz, sometime the intel e5v2 @2.40ghz, or even the e5 (no V) @ [email protected]
    DO Singapre using Intel Gold 6140 @ 2.30ghz

    Hwha just like Linode, if your node needs maintenance then you will be moved to another mostly not new 'gold' system. If you need the Gold CPU for sure and lowend, Vultr guarantees a certain Gold processor.
