CSGO: Server Hardware Information
We take server performance very seriously and that is one of the main reasons we are one of the best game server providers out there. We truly understand the importance of high-quality and performing servers, and we will never cut any corners when it comes to performance.

Our servers run on enterprise hardware and premium DDoS-protected networks. The server’s hardware differs depending on the location, but a common server looks something like this:
- CPU: Intel E-2388G, AMD Ryzen 9 7900 or similar.
- RAM: 128 GB of DDR4 ECC memory
- Storage: NVMe or SATA SSD. 30GB included with every CS:GO server, excluding installation.
- Network: 1 or 10 Gbps
All CS:GO servers' svms values are being continuously tracked so we can make sure that we maintain the performance needed for a 128-tick server.
Svms is the time the server simulation step took on the last networked frame (in milliseconds).
Tickrate is defined as the number of packets the server receives every second.
So in order for the server to be able to compute 128 packets every second, we need to keep the svms value below the critical threshold of 7.8125 ms. As long as the server manages to compute a package under 7.8125 ms, the server will maintain the competitive standards for a 128-tick server. Our servers usually average around 2-3 ms.
In addition to this, we also have external uptime and performance monitoring that monitors our servers' performance 24/7, from locations all over the world, to ensure they are always performing according to our high standards.
We do not offer the option that some other providers might do, to pay for an “upgrade” to your server. Instead, we take the approach where all our servers will have the best performance possible. We won’t apply any RAM usage limitations or CPU throttling to your server, we will always serve the performance needed.
All our servers are running on enterprise hardware that is very modern and up-to-date, so performance won’t be an issue.
