The AWS Graviton Advantage

Don MacAskill (SmugMug & Flickr), Liz Fong-Jones ( and Dave Brown (Amazon) share real world experiences about running workloads on AWS Graviton processors based on Arm Neoverse.

Introducing AWS Graviton3

Up to 25% Higher Compute Performance* 

With support for bfloat16, AWS Graviton3 processors deliver up to 3x better performance for ML workloads*. Graviton3 is also the first CPU in the cloud to feature the latest DDR5 memory that provides 50% more memory bandwidth than DDR4.

*Compared to AWS Graviton2
Up to 2x Higher Floating-Point Performance

For scientific, machine learning, gaming and media encoding workloads. And up to 2x faster performance for cryptographic workloads than Graviton2.
