I run the box I’ll be dedicating to MaidSafe in a VM on the ProxMoxVE virtualization platform. I have many vCPU’s I can choose to outfit the VM with, & I was wondering which one provides the best instruction set for use on the MS network?
I’d like to optimize my VM for the best payout in Safecoin, & I’m imagining the CPU with the most in-demand instruction set will pay the most, so I need to know which one to use.
Here are my choices:
(486 | Conroe | Haswell | Nehalem | Opteron_G1 | Opteron_G2 |
Opteron_G3 | Opteron_G4 | Opteron_G5 | Penryn | SandyBridge |
Westmere | athlon | core2duo | coreduo | host | kvm32 | kvm64
| pentium | pentium2 | pentium3 | phenom | qemu32 | qemu64)
Does the provided instruction set even matter much? Or will plain old clock speed trump the provided instruction set?
Of these, the ‘kvm64’ runs the fastest, but I’m not sure if another emulation type would provide better for those using the vCPU over the network.
