Has one core the same performance at any type of droplet?

Posted June 21, 2013 2.6k views
Based on the Pricing page you scale the plans by number of cores (next to RAM etc.). Is that true? Does it mean that a single core/thread process inside the VM would roughly be as performant no matter if I'm on $20 or $160 plan?

Yeah the back end of the vm manages probably a hundred(my guess) virtual processors, and that's what you get, one of those virtual processors.. Think of it has hyperthireading on drugs, where there are many virtual threads that que process requests, but still only a handful of processors.. Bt yeah, I think they'd be the same.
All droplets are hosted on 2-2.3Ghz hypervisors, regardless of the plan.
