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

As part of the complete revamping of its bare metal offering, 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 latest AMD Ryzen 3000 processors to provide the highest performance in the gaming market. It will appeal not only to gamers but also to resellers and video processing professionals looking for powerful servers.

With this new range, OVHcloud offers high-performance business-grade servers powered by AMD Ryzen processors, initially designed for desktop computers. Through a strong partnership between OVHcloud and AMD, the leading European cloud provider enables its customers to fully utilize AMD’s processors.

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

  • The Game 1 range is available in OVHcloud’s data centres in Canada, the United States and Europe. Powered by Ryzen 5 3600X processors, these servers are intended for consumers, students and tech-savvy users who want to host games online.
  • TheGame 2 range is powered by Ryzen 7 3800X processors and available in OVHcloud’s data centres in the United States, in addition to France. Game 2 servers will also be deployed in Canadian and European-based data centres 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 data centres[1].

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