You can now launch G3 instances, the latest generation of Amazon EC2 Accelerated Compute Instances. G3 instances make it easy to procure a powerful combination of GPU, CPU, and host memory for workloads such as 3D rendering, 3D visualizations, graphics-intensive remote workstations, video encoding, and virtual reality applications.
Backed by the NVIDIA Tesla M60 GPUs, G3 instances offer double the CPU power per GPU, and double the host memory per GPU when compared to the most powerful GPU cloud instance available today. This allows you to do complex modeling and 3D visualization analyses such as medical image processing, computer-aided design, or seismic visualization jobs in much less time than possible with any other GPU cloud instance.
ou can launch G3 instances using the AWS Management Console, AWS CLI, AWS SDKs, and third-party libraries. G3 instances are available in three instance sizes in US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), US West (N. California), AWS GovCloud (US), and EU (Ireland), with support for more regions coming soon. To learn more about G3 instances, visit the AWS Blog.
