    Hi guys,

    As you may be aware, DatPixel has grown in players over the past 2 weeks. Unfortunately, survival goes offline on a daily basis because of lagging, stalling, etc. When survival goes offline, I get as upset as you guys do. I am putting an end to this by moving DatPixel to much more powerful servers that are able to take extreme loads (and no I did not mean this in a sexual way).

    The host change will take place in a few days, before the weekend of course. At the moment we are just working on getting overclocked servers. The host change will take place around midnight and downtime will be kept to a minimum (~45 minutes).

    Here are the specs if you are curious (we are getting 2 of these):
    - Intel i7 7700k (latest Kaby Lake CPU) overclocked @ 4.7/5.0Ghz
    - 64gb RAM (DDR4)
    - 2x 450gb PCI-e SSD (motherboard integrated, also known as nvme)
    - Gigabit uplink like all our servers have

    This host change should improve the overall stability of the network. The CPU in question is about a 150% increase in performance versus our current CPU. Additionally, we will be hiring a optimization service on board to ensure server lag remains next to none.

    Thanks guys!
    ~ Steven

    I'd think so, considering the changes are in the specs of what the server's hosted on, not the location. If you're connecting from Asia to NA servers, you will usually get 200-600ms ping.

    How on earth are you gonna cool that thing for it to run at 5Ghz? And how can you guarantee such a well binned chip?

    It's not a personal computer. It's a server. They're completely incomparable. This server wouldn't run video games as well as your PC, because it's not built to. You talk about your PC so often, I'm starting to feel like you're just humblebragging. Your PC is good. It's cool. But it's certainly not some monster rig. Maybe I'm interpreting this wrong, and if so, I'm sorry, but it's becoming somewhat obnoxious.

    And it would run games better than his computer, it isn't a server CPU.

    I say that because there's not GPU, which is WAY more important for games. Pretty much anything better than a 2700K is fine on a gaming rig, but the GPU is what matters. The server is left with the built in GPU.
