AWS launched its Arm-powered Graviton3 data center chip Tuesday at its annual re:Invent conference, promising a 25% boost to performance compared with the prior version.
AWS said the new processors will help power the company's new EC2 C7g instances, which customers can use computing tasks such as batch processing, electronic design automation, media encoding, scientific modeling and machine-learning tasks.
The new instances will use speedy DDR5 memory, which consumes less power and achieves higher memory bandwidth. Amazon said the C7g instances are the first in the cloud industry to use DDR5 memory.
The company said that in addition to the compute performance boost, the processor would also offer twice as powerful floating-point and cryptographic performance, and three times the machine-learning performance.
