AWS Graviton and Arm Neoverse Enable the Best Price-performance in Amazon EC2

Based on Arm Neoverse V1, the AWS Graviton3 processor provides up 25% better compute performance, 2x faster cryptographic performance, and up to 3x better performance for ML workloads compared to AWS Graviton2.

Arm and AWS have partnered to enable the best price performance and CPU silicon innovation in the Amazon cloud. The AWS Graviton3 and AWS Graviton3E processors use the Arm Neoverse V1 core. And the AWS Graviton2 processor uses Arm Neoverse N1 cores to deliver its computational horsepower.

Tens of thousands of customers, including 48 of the top 50 Amazon EC2 customers, use AWS Graviton processors for their workloads. Snap, Twitter, Netflix, Epic Games, Splunk, Nielsen, Redbox, Hotelbeds, and others are experiencing the improved performance and cost savings AWS Graviton-based instances using Arm technology can deliver.

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.
