Announcing New Amazon EC2 M6g, C6g, and R6g Instances Powered by Next-Generation Arm-based AWS Graviton2 Processors

The new general purpose (M6g), compute optimized (C6g), and memory optimized (R6g) Amazon EC2 instances deliver up to 40% improved price/performance over current generation M5, C5, and R5 instances for a broad spectrum of workloads including application servers, open source databases, in-memory caches, microservices, gaming servers, electronic design automation, high-performance computing, and video encoding. These instances are powered by new AWS Graviton2 processors that use 64-bit Arm Neoverse cores and custom silicon designed by AWS, built using advanced 7 nanometer manufacturing technology. AWS Graviton2 processors deliver several performance optimizations over the first generation AWS Graviton processors such as 7x performance, 4x the number of compute cores, 2x larger private caches per core, 5x faster memory, and 2x faster floating-point performance per core. Additionally, they feature always-on fully encrypted DDR4 memory to further enhance security and 50% faster per core encryption performance. AWS Graviton2 processors also support custom hardware acceleration for compression workloads, and optimized instructions for faster CPU-based machine learning inference.
