Frequently Asked Questions about Hardware Upgrades

What are CPU priority upgrades?
  • In Windows operating system, when a number of processes are running on the server the processor time is shared between the apps. This time sharing is based on a parameter called priority level. The higher the priority level of a process, the more processor time it's assigned.

    Priority upgrades ensure your server high availability to the CPU resources on the shared environment. We also offer a dedicated CPU core option which gives your server exclusive use of its own CPU cores.

Can I purchase additional RAM?
  • Short Answer: Yes!

    11GB Dedicated RAM is allocated to ARK: SA servers by default. This can be upgraded to 16GB, 24GB or 32GB depending on your needs.

What is the difference between PCIe NVMe and SATA SSD?
  • Everyone knows SSDs are faster, more efficient and have lower failure rates than HDDs right? Well ultimately SATA is a legacy standard that wasn't designed with solid state storage in mind. Most SATA SSDs max out around 550MB/s. Current flagship NVMe, or Non Volatile Memory Express, drives on the other hand offer about 6x the bandwidth and boast transfer speeds of over 3GB/s. This is accomplished by using the PCI Express interface instead of SATA.

    These speeds will make short work of the large file transfers and high input/output operations of today's games.
