OVHcloud launches a new range of Game servers powered by AMD Ryzen processors

OVHcloud today announced the launch of a brand-new range of Game servers. Entirely based on latest-generation components, the new range is powered by the most up-to-date AMD Ryzen 3000 processors to provide the highest performance on the gaming market. Part of its enhanced bare metal suite, OVHcloud believes the range will appeal to gamers as well as resellers and video processing professionals looking for powerful servers.

With this new range, OVHcloud is offering very high-performance business-grade servers powered by AMD Ryzen processors, that were initially designed for desktop computers. OVHcloud’s deep partnership with AMD enables its customers to fully utilise AMD’s processors.

OVHcloud is the only cloud provider able to cool AMD Ryzen processors optimally, in order to use maximum frequencies for all cores. OVHcloud has unique expertise in server cooling, with a watercooling system that has been developed in-house and deployed in its own datacentres since 2003. When combined with optimised air flows, this system makes it possible to remove air conditioning from datacentres.  It’s thanks to this high-performing process that OVHcloud is able to cool these processors optimally.

The Game 1 range is already available in OVHcloud’s datacentres in Europe, Canada and the United States. Powered by Ryzen 5 3600X processors, these servers are intended for consumers, students and tech-savvy users who want to host games online.

The Game 2 range is powered by Ryzen 7 3800X processors and available as well in OVHcloud’s data centers in the United States, in addition to France. Game 2 servers will also be deployed in Canadian and European-based datacentres in the coming months.

The Game 3 range is based on Ryzen 9 processors. These servers will be available as of February 2020 in OVHcloud’s French-based datacentres[1].

Both Game 2 and 3 servers are designed for professionals who want to host multiple online games via the same computer. These servers are also ideally suited to the needs of video publishers, community managers, and any professionals that handle creative workloads.

All Game servers provide benefits that are unique to OVHcloud, including ECC memory, IPMI/KVM, watercooling, up to 1 Gbps public bandwidth, unlimited traffic, industry-first built-in Game anti-DDoS protection, and the company’s own global network with 20 Tbps capacity.
