We are excited to announce that Amazon EC2 Elastic GPUs now support OpenGL 4.0, and they are available in the US West (Oregon) and EU (Ireland) regions. To activate OpenGL 4.0 support for existing Amazon EC2 Elastic GPUs, simply stop and start your instances, and a new driver will be automatically installed in your instance to support OpenGL 4.0. 

Amazon EC2 Elastic GPUs allow you to easily attach low-cost graphics acceleration to a wide range of EC2 instances over the network. Simply choose an instance with the right amount of compute, memory, and storage for your workload, and then use Amazon EC2 Elastic GPUs to add the GPU resources needed to accelerate the graphics performance of your application for a fraction of the cost of standalone graphics instances. 

In addition to the regions launched today, Amazon EC2 Elastic GPUs are already available in the US East (N. Virginia) and US East (Ohio) regions. For more information, visit the Amazon EC2 Elastic GPUs page. To get started, visit Getting Started with Amazon EC2 Elastic GPUs.
