Looking at the new Premium CPU options and it seems looking at benchmarks that AMD outperforms the Intel offering at the same price point.
I see it’s not possible to automatically resize to an AMD vCPU from an Intel vCPU with the reason cited as “some things might break”. But, a method is suggested where a droplet snapshot can be created and deployed on a new droplet to achieve the switch, so I’m a bit confused as to why this isn’t provided as a resize option, at least with a warning.
Assuming that we are talking about a CentOS 7.x web server with nothing compiled from source, with standard packages being used and no known application code making use of specific CPU features - what are the risks and considerations when switching?
