However, the new interface is not the only change of Vultr. If you pay a little attention, besides SSD Cloud Instances, Vultr has launched a new more product: High-Frequency Compute. So, what it is?

According to a post in Vultr blog:

We are also excited to share the latest product in our cloud lineup – high frequency compute! Powered by 3+ GHz processors and blazing fast NVME storage, this newest plan is the highest performance hardware architecture Vultr has ever offered. High Frequency compute powers the most demanding workloads with storage and processing benchmarks that exceed standard compute by up to 40%!

So that means, the new product High-Frequency Compute will give you much higher CPU speed, and much 40% faster load speeds than regular Compute Instance.

Vultr High CPU Compute instance pricing is a little higher, but you will get more SSD storage than Compute Instance. The cheapest plan starts from $6/mo with 1 CPU, 1GB RAM, 32 GB SSD, and 1 TB bandwidth. The highest plan is $256/m with 768 GB of SSD storage, 12 CPU, 48 GB of RAM and 8 TB bandwidth.
