Though current server that runs on E3-1230v3 is still not fully utilized, we are still happy to upgrade our existing server to get in touch with the latest E3 cpu in the market. As always, we invest the profit into the hardware.
E3-1276v3 was just recently launch in Q2-2014. Built in with Intel® HD Graphics P4600, this CPU will definitely boast the max performance.
At the same time, there will be raid card installed on the server (LSI Raidcard), to increase the disk performance.
Overall, this upgrade will indirectly give much better performance in terms of CPU and Disk.
We have done the necessary setting such that you don't have to make any configuration changes. We also backup your data to offsite server in case things go wrong.
As to the timing, this will be done on 12 July 2014 at 1AM Singapore Time. Expected downtime would be about 1 - 2 hours as we need to shutdown, migrate the account, and bootup.
If you have any questions, please open a support ticket with us.
