Are there any benchmarks comparing DigitalOcean’s CPU-Optimized droplets against AWS c6g instances?

I’m working on a multiplayer game, and the game server I’m writing is very CPU-heavy, however it benefits from multiple threads.

Network costs are much lower at DO, but I wonder if DO’s CPU-optimized droplets can perform as well as AWS c6g CPUs?

Hi there @rerdos,

I’ve not seen an official benchmark test and I’ve not done such a benchmark test myself but here is one that I found after quick research:

According to the test, I believe that you should get similar performance at a much lower price.
