Amazon EC2 Elastic GPUs is now Amazon Elastic Graphics. The name of the service has changed, but the functionality, features, APIs, SDKs, and pricing remain the same. Amazon Elastic Graphics is a low-cost alternative to EC2 GPU instance types (such as G2 and G3) for graphics use cases. It provides you the flexibility of attaching graphics acceleration to the EC2 instance of your choice to meet the graphics demand of your workloads for as low as $0.05 per hour.

Elastic Graphics supports OpenGL 4.3. With graphics accelerator sizes ranging from 1 GiB to 8 GiB of graphics memory, Elastic Graphics provides configurable graphics acceleration for a variety of use cases such as graphics intensive virtual desktops, computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), and HPC visualization. We are renaming Amazon EC2 Elastic GPUs to make our service naming more consistent with the graphics acceleration use case.

Elastic Graphics is available in US East (N. Virginia, Ohio), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Tokyo, Sydney, Singapore), and EU (Frankfurt, Ireland) AWS regions. For more information on Amazon Elastic Graphics, click here.
