AMD Announces EPYC Processors Now Available on Amazon Web Services

Today at Next Horizon, AMD and Amazon Web Services,  announced the immediate availability of the first AMD EPYC™ processor-based instances on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). Part of the most popular AWS instance families, the new AMD EPYC™ processor powered offerings feature industry leading core density and memory bandwidth.  This results in exceptional performance per dollar for general purpose and memory optimized workloads. The cost savings are driven by the core density of AMD EPYC processors that offer M5 and T3 instance customers a balance of compute, memory, and networking resources for web and application servers, backend servers for enterprise applications, and test/development environments with seamless application migration. For R5 instance customers, the memory bandwidth advantage of AMD EPYC processors is ideal for in-memory processing, data mining, and dynamic data processing.
