My server is a four core virtual box at 2.9ghz E5-2690, apparently with turbo boost disabled. I have asked if I could get moved to a higher clock speed CPU, since source is single threaded and can’t use more than one core at one time. My host is trying to say that a higher clock speed is not always the case for source servers, but I have been told by many people a higher clock speed is better than source servers…
From my own personal experience, higher clock speed CPU’s have treated me much better than lower ones with more cores…
Can someone confirm who is right / wrong because I’m really anxious to know.
My TTT starts lagging at about 30 players, pretty bad. When I type “stats” into the console, it shows the CPU core is at about 99%.
The same goes for my zombie survival, which is a bit less demanding. It starts lagging at 38 players at 99% on another core. (I have four cores)
I’m just wondering how people like “Modified DarkRP” are able to get 84/84 smoothly without lag. Noxious runs their Zombie Survival at 75/75 which is much heavily more modified smoothly without lag.
So what is correct to say about above?
