Amazon EC2 G3 Instances, the latest generation of Amazon EC2 Accelerated Compute Instances, make it easy to procure a powerful combination of GPU, CPU, and host memory. 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 makes G3 instances ideal for workloads such as 3D rendering, 3D visualizations, graphics-intensive remote workstations, video encoding, and virtual reality applications.

In addition to the new regions announced today, Amazon EC2 G3 Instances are available in US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), US West (N. California), AWS GovCloud (US), and EU (Ireland).

You can launch G3 instances using the AWS Management Console, AWS Command Line Interface (CLI), AWS SDKs, and third-party libraries. To learn more about G3 instances, visit the AWS Blog.
