Perhaps you could preceed each command with strace and compare what
your PC is doing with the VPS result. Are they running exactly the
same OS? Is it exactly the same version of ImageMagick? Even if the
ImageMagick is the same it could be using a different version of a
library, which might be slow.

Anyway... just a few thoughts...
