Starting today, the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) G5 instances powered by NVIDIA A10G Tensor Core GPUs are now available in US East (Ohio), Asia Pacific (Jakarta, Seoul, Sydney), Middle East (UAE), and South America (Sao Paulo). G5 instances can be used for a wide range of graphics intensive and machine learning use cases. They deliver up to 3x higher performance for graphics-intensive applications and machine learning inference over Amazon EC2 G4dn instances. For training simple to moderately complex machine learning models, they deliver up to 3.3x higher performance than G4dn instances.

G5 instances feature up to 8 NVIDIA A10G Tensor Core GPUs and 2nd generation AMD EPYC processors. With eight G5 instance sizes that offer access to single or multiple GPUs, customers have the flexibility to pick the right instance size for their applications.

Customers can use G5 instances for graphics-intensive applications such as remote workstations, video rendering, and cloud gaming to produce high fidelity graphics in real time. Machine learning customers can use G5 instances for high performance and cost-efficient training and inference for natural language processing, computer vision, and recommender engine use cases. 

G5 instances are also available in the US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), Europe (Ireland, Frankfurt, London), Asia Pacific (Tokyo, Mumbai), and Canada (Central) Regions. Customers can purchase G5 instances via Savings Plans, Reserved, On-Demand, and Spot instances. To get started, visit the AWS Management Console, AWS Command Line Interface (CLI), and AWS SDKs.
