Introducing Amazon EC2 M7g and R7g Instances
AWS announces the general availability of Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) M7g instances and Amazon EC2 R7g instances. These instances are powered by AWS Graviton3 processors and deliver up to 25% better performance over Graviton2-based instances. Compared to AWS Graviton2 processors, they offer up to 2x better floating-point performance, up to 2x faster crypto performance, and up to 3x better machine learning (ML) performance, including support for bfloat16. These Graviton3-based instances feature the latest DDR5 memory, which provides 50% more memory bandwidth than DDR4, to enable high-speed access to data in memory. These instances are built on the AWS Nitro System. M7g instances are built for general purpose workloads, such as application servers, microservices, gaming servers, midsize data stores, and caching fleets. R7g instances are used for memory-intensive workloads such as open-source databases, in-memory caches, and real-time big data analytics.
