In 2013, Cloudflare posted a tour of their latest generation of server hardware that powers their servers https://blog.cloudflare.com/a-tour-inside-cloudflares-latest-generation-servers/.
Curious if there is plans on 2017 update tour ? Curious to see if Cloudflare’s tested and benchmarked latest generation of Intel processors to see how much more they could gain compared to the 2013 tour - especially in terms of cryptographic capabilities and networking performance of the newer generation of servers and now that AMD Zen/Ryzen cpus are giving Intel some competition in terms of performance and multi-threaded power
Cloudflare must be excited by latest Intel Skylake-X Core i9 and AMD Ryzen 9 ThreadRipper rumours Though I guess Cloudflare would be looking at performance per watt consumed for high density server counts in datacenters.
Not to mention the start of 25Gbps and higher network adaptors
