Remote Server Upgraded

I’m very happy to announce that my remote server has been upgraded by quite a lot. Originally the humble little Dell R210 box was perfect for what I wanted but as I started loading it over time with more VM’s it was starting to creak. An absolute bargain on eBay saw my way to a bigger brother in the family. A Dell R410 which has twin hex core CPU’s and 24GB of RAM. A decent upgrade from the dual core from previously.

Installation wasn’t straight forward and I did have to fully re-install ESXi to get it up and running again but thankfully I’m now back up and running at six times the performance level of before!

Further Computer Update

After having rebuilt my main gaming PC onto the Ryzen platform I was left feeling like something was just missing. Whilst I love(d) my 980Ti it also felt like it too was due an upgrade. The only route forward that I could see with a whopping 50% performance improvement was the 1080Ti so not wanting to buy a basic one I’ve opted for the Asus ROG Strix 1080Ti

 

Computer update

It’s been a long time since I upgraded the main gaming and video creating PC so I’ve decided to go back to team red!
