AWS unveils new Nvidia-powered GPU cloud instances

AWS has announced the launch of its next-generation GPU-equipped instances. The P4d instances arrive nearly a decade after AWS first launched its Cluster GPU instances, which were launched in late 2010, and promise better performance at a lower cost.

“Today I would like to tell you about the new GPU-equipped P4 instances,” Jeff Barr, Chief Evangelist for AWS, said. “These instances are powered by the latest Intel Cascade Lake processors and feature eight of the latest NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs, each connected to all of the others by NVLink and with support for NVIDIA GPUDirect. With 2.5 PetaFLOPS of floating point performance and 320 GB of high-bandwidth GPU memory, the instances can deliver up to 2.5x the deep learning performance, and up to 60% lower cost to train when compared to P3 instances.”
