Vultr High Frequency Compute Instances

Last updated on

On June 10th 2019, Vultr announced the launch of high frequency compute instances in a Twitter post.

The new instances are powered by high clock speed CPU's and NVMe local. Vultr claims geekbench 55% better performance, 3GHz cpus. In the instance we've tested, the CPU was a Skylake processor clocked at 3.8GHz.

processor       : 0
vendor_id       : GenuineIntel
cpu family      : 6
model           : 94
model name      : Virtual CPU 6db7dc0e7704

microcode       : 0x1
cpu MHz         : 3792.000
cache size      : 16384 KB

For the same number of core and memory, High Frequency plans have 15% or more additional disk space, data transfer limit stays the same. The hourly price is 20% higher than the regular VC2 instances.

The VC2 $10 and the High Frequency $12 plans both have 1 core and 2GB RAM so they can easily be compared.

So how much more speed can you get of those HF instances? Quite a bit, it turns out.

Web average response time is 78% lower than for the equivalent VC2 plan.

In Sysbench CPU test, the HF plan is 6% faster than the Vultr VC2 plan and 10% faster that UpCloud 2GB 1 core. We observe similar numbers in the CPU Endurance test.

In terms of disk IO, the HF instance read and write throughput were both 35% higher that the VC2 plan.

If those HF instances stay that fast, they look like serious competition to UpCloud. You might want to jump on the opportunity before they change their mind.
