In this blog post:
It says that the new AMD VM's should "deliver a 5-40% improvement in performance at lower cost"
Specifically, it was mentioned that switching from Fsv2 (which we currently use), to Dasv4, would offer more performance/price.
However, I ran the calculations on the pricing calculator (https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/calculator/) and found:
- Fsv2 (current): $270.10 / month - https://i.imgur.com/VnKxlwa.png
- Dasv4 (proposed): $302.22 / month - https://i.imgur.com/qH0GOiO.png
This is the closest match I could find based on the blog article and pricing calculator that had 4 vCPUs and SSD.
For our game, CPU is by far the bottleneck, so anything beyond 4 GB ram is just bonus points, so I feel like we are paying for extra ram on the Dasv4 that we don't need.
Am I missing something here, or is the comparable AMD server actually more expensive than the Intel one?
