BuyVM upgraded the CPU in Luxembourg to Ryzen 9 5900X

215

BuyVM has upgraded the CPU in their Luxembourg location from Ryzen 9 3900X to 5900X and restocked the long-awaited block storage slabs in Luxembourg as well. Other locations will follow soon. Additionally, premier accounts will have the network upgrade from 1 Gbps to 10 Gbps. If you don’t have a premier account which requires having an active BuyVM VPS for 180 days, your VPS has to be active for at least 90 days to be qualified for the port speed upgrade.

They also restocked block storage slabs in the Luxembourg location which were unavailable for a long time. A BuyVM VPS in the same location is required in order to attach a block storage slab in the Stallion control panel, any size will do. I previously wrote an article about how to format and mount a BuyVM block storage slab to a slice that will guide you to do so properly.

The following is my yabs result of my BuyVM 1 GB slice with a 256 GB block storage slab attached. The Geekbench 5 score for a single core is 1570 which is a massive upgrade from the old Ryzen 9 3900X CPU that was around 900.

Moreover, the Luxembourg location is an exotic one where your privacy matters. You can do pretty much anything as long as it doesn’t violate the law of the land and their TOS. If you enjoy this article or find it useful, please consider using my BuyVM aff link.
