In a couple of years there will be whole teams who have never run a benchmark on bare metal.

With that in mind, I thought it worth doing some personal and standard benchmarks, so that future cloud provision can be judged against.

Here is my table for vps, dedicated, desktop, laptop which gives me somewhere to slot future cloud instances.

If you have access to bare metal today, then it might be worth spending an hour now doing a table.

Some of my benchmarks are very particular to Python and/or Mathematics using Gmp library, however unixbench score (highlighted) is a standard score, that you can use in your own table as a general guide.
