Amazon EC2 Elastic GPUs allow you to easily attach low-cost graphics acceleration to current generation EC2 instances. With Elastic GPUs, you choose the GPU resources that are sized for your workload, so you can accelerate the graphics performance of your applications for a fraction of the cost of stand-alone graphics instances.  Elastic GPUs are ideal If you need a small amount of GPU for graphics acceleration, or have applications that could benefit from some GPU, but also require high amounts of compute, memory, or storage. 

Elastic GPUs make it easy to attach graphics acceleration to existing Amazon EC2 instance types in much the same way as attaching Amazon EBS volumes. With Amazon EC2 Elastic GPUs, you can configure the right amount of graphics acceleration to your particular workload without being constrained by fixed hardware configurations and limited GPU selection. Amazon EC2 Elastic GPUs plans to support OpenGL and offer up to 8GB of GPU memory, making them ideally suited for any workload that needs a small amount of additional GPU such as virtual desktops, gaming, industrial design, or HPC visualization.
