AMD Ryzen CPU-based dedicated servers are on the way. The web hosting company and data center operator Hetzner has expanded its line of servers with AMD’s third generation of Ryzen CPUs.
Four new dedicated root servers are being offered, powered by third-generation Ryzen CPUs based on the “Matisse” Zen 2 architecture at Hetzner Online. These new four servers aim to create a unique offering to customers with creative workloads that rely on multi-threaded CPU power like video editing, animations, and image editing.
All four servers can handle high multi-threading
According to Tommy Giesler, Product Manager Dedicated Root Servers at Hetzner Online; all four servers are built to handle applications that have high multi-threading requirements. Still, they’re also great as general entry-level servers for people with heavy workloads.
When compared to the previous generation of Ryzen-based servers and Ryzen desktop CPUs, new servers provide a noticeable boost in performance across the board, plus increases in cache size and far better performing floating-point units with the latest AMD Zen architecture improvements.

The AX41 and AX41-NVME are based on the Ryzen 5 3600 CPU, a 6-core, and 12-thread desktop CPU. They also house a choice of either two 2 TB HDDs or two 512 GB NVMe SSDs, plus 64 GB of DDR4 RAM. The more powerful models are the AX51 and AX51-NVMe, which are based on the AMD Ryzen 7 3700X, a popular choice among gamers and enthusiasts and is an 8-core and 16-thread CPU. For storage, there are either two 8 TB HDDs or two 1024 GB NVMe SSDs. Both models include 64 GB of DDR4 ECC RAM.
There has been a lot of interest in general in the release of this new generation of Ryzen CPUs for a long time. We started testing them months ago and are very happy with the results and their performance.
For all four models, a wide range of other hardware, such as NVMe and SATA SSDs or HDDs, can be added for a small monthly fee.
