Amazon Web Services debuted a new variety of EC2 instances powered by Intel Xeon chips capable of providing its fastest Electronic Design Automation (EDA) processing functionality yet.
The new Amazon EC2 X2iezn models use Intel Xeon Scalable (Cascade Lake) processors similar to its previously announced EC2 M5zn models. For this X2iezn transmission, those chips will operate at a clock speed of 4.5GHz and will be paired with 1.5TB memory. AWS states that these new scenarios could provide “up to 55% per capita vCPU performance compared to X1e scenarios.”
Customer-focused delivery of a new product type will range from x2iezn.2xlarge configuration (8vCPUs, 256GB of RAM, 25Gbps of bandwidth, and 3.17Gbps of Elastic Block Storage (EBS) – optimized bandwidth) to high end x2ieznxlarge. And x2iezn.metal versions (48vCPUs, 1,536GB of RAM, 100Gbps bandwidth, and 19Gbps EBS optimized bandwidth).
