Amazon EC2 G4ad instances which provide the best price performance for graphics intensive applications in the cloud are now available in US East (Ohio), Europe (Frankfurt and London), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), and Canada (Central). G4ad instances are powered by AMD Radeon Pro V520 GPUs and second-generation AMD EPYC processors, and provide up to 45% better price performance over G4dn instances for graphics intensive applications such as virtual workstations, game streaming, and graphics rendering.

G4ad instances are powered by AMD Radeon Pro V520 GPUs that are built on AMD’s RDNA architecture, delivering high performance graphics acceleration for high quality workstation and gaming experiences. Using G4ad instances, customers can create photo-realistic and high-resolution 3D content for movies, games, and AR/VR. Customers can access AMD Radeon Pro Software for Enterprise at no additional cost and get professional-grade graphics rendering for virtual workstations. Customers looking to use remote workstations in the cloud for running graphics applications can use G4ad instances to get the flexibility to provision resources on a per project basis rather than being limited by on-premises capacity.

Amazon EC2 G4ad instances are built on the AWS Nitro System, a collection of AWS-designed hardware and software innovations that enable the delivery of efficient, flexible, and secure cloud services with isolated multi-tenancy, private networking, and fast local storage.

The G4ad instances are available in 3 sizes, providing up to 64 vCPUs, 4 GPUs, 256 GB instance memory, 2.4 TB local NVMe-based SSD storage, and 25 Gbps networking bandwidth. The G4ad instances can be purchased On-Demand, as part of Savings Plans, as Reserved instances, or Spot instances.
