Cloud server provider OVHcloud announced today new gaming-specific servers equipped with AMD's latest Ryzen 5000 series chips that currently lead our list of Best CPUs. The cloud provider offers two configurations: a Ryzen 5 5600X server equipped with 32GB of RAM for $113.51 a month, or a Ryzen 7 5800X configuration with 64GB of RAM for $170.28 per month.

Each config has 1Gbps (1000Mbps) connectivity and is available in four data center locations. For storage, you have the option of a 500GB SSD or a 960GB SSD in either SATA or NVMe.
These servers are a direct upgrade from the company's previous game server configurations with Ryzen 3000 series CPUs. The Ryzen 5000 chips come with the Zen 3 architecture. Its higher IPC should make a noticeable difference in game server workloads where single-core performance is still very important, similar to playing a video game on the client side.
You can rent the 5600X configuration at a baseline of $113.51 a month, while the Ryzen 7 5800X server weighs in at $170.28. These prices might change based on your choice of storage configurations.
