I'm running a dedicated server called Shattered Realm. Currently this server is running a custom scenario with about 90 playfields and an average player count of 50, peaking at around 80. We are running on a dedicated server provided by low.ms at the following spec: CPU = Intel I7 7700K 4.5Ghz RAM = 64GB DDR 4 HDD = 250GB SSD 10TB bandwidth Currently the CPU is sitting at 100% usage at around 40 players, as more players connect they are reporting problems getting disconnected from server and other issues with ships not warping etc. My question for the Devs is; is the I7 the best CPU for Empyrion - Dedicated Server or would the intensive processing requirements be better served by the Xenon type processors? From what i understand the I7 is faster, it has higher clock speeds but much less capacity (cache & cores). the Xenons i think are better at multitasking but are slower in clock speed so its difficult without knowing much about how Empyrion works, which would work better for it. Cheers, Spanj.
