What kind of “exact” information are you looking for, supernova?
I get guaranteed cpu and memory. These bounds set the minimum performance of my site.
From the memory perspective, the performance of a majority of sites won’t be affected. The guaranteed memory just means that you will be able to run any processes up to that memory limit.
From the CPU perspective, depending on the CPU utilization of your site, you should have a minimum equal to the performance on a CPU at your mininum CPU allocation - in my case a 150Mhz processor or roughly 7% of a single typical CPU (of which there are either 2 or 4 on our servers).
OTOH, I think the fantastic thing about the VPS implementation is that it more fairly allocates CPU time after you’ve exceeded the guaranteed limit. On our normal shared server, a single user can create thousands of processes that end up eating up a disproportionate amount of cpu resources, even when there are processes that other users want to run. Under either of the Linux VServer alternative implementations of CPU token buckets, each virtual server would get their proportionate share of the CPU - so you not only get your minimum, but you get your proportionate share of the otherwise unused excess CPU!
